WTS-Boston, the Boston Chapter of WTS Advancing Women in Transportation, announced selection of three artists as finalists to develop public art showcasing women’s contributions to the transportation industry. The art work will be located within the MBTA South Station transportation hub.
The three finalists will create design concepts in the final round of a highly competitive artist selection process and present their concepts at a public meeting in January 2015. The work will be available for public review and online input. A winner is expected to be announced in February.
The artists selected as finalists include:
