Interested artists can apply for the project at www.callforentry.org. The deadline to apply is 5 p.m. on May 6. Sun Metro is looking for an artist whose work is not only creative, but represents El Paso from a social, geographic, and demographic perspective. The artist who wins will have his or her art displayed inside building.
The Arves E. Jones, Sr. Transit Center is part of El Paso’s efforts to improve public transportation. It is located at 9348 Diana in Northeast El Paso, in the area that used to be the Northgate Mall. It is Sun Metro’s newest addition to its transportation system.
