Artist Call: Exhibit at Amtrak Train Station in 2023

December 5, 2022 | Department of Community Planning & Economic Development Public Art Program

The City of Lancaster’s Office of Public Art invites artists to create site-specific work to be exhibited in two glass enclosed cases located on the south side of the Lancaster Amtrak Train Station concourse in 2023. The deadline to submit a proposal is Mon. Jan. 9, 2023 at 5 p.m. 

The Lancaster Amtrak Station is the second busiest Amtrak station in Pennsylvania, boasting an annual ridership of nearly 600,000 in the last fiscal year. The station’s display cases have historically served as a mode for celebrating local artists and arts organizations through an annually scheduled rotation of exhibitions.

Finalists will be selected from the pool of submissions by a selection committee using a set of standardized criteria. Selected finalists will be required to present their project to the Public Art Advisory Board (PAAB). Three artists will ultimately be selected, with each exhibiting for three months. 

To apply, submit materials to Molly Kirchoff, Office of Public Art Program Manager, at mkirchoff@cityoflancasterpa.gov.
