Eglinton Subway Integrated Art

These projects are part of a professionally designed public art program that will place Metrolinx on par with leading transit agencies and help improve the customer experience. 

In November 2015, Metrolinx issued an open and invitational call for artists for the Eglinton Crosstown LRT project. Metrolinx received 187 applications, yielding 69 qualified submissions. More than half of these qualified submissions were from Canadian artists. 

In January 2016, Metrolinx prequalified a short-list of 14 artists. An independent selection panel, made up of four specialists, reviewed the artists’ qualifications and artwork submissions prepared for each station. The selection panel consulted with a larger panel appointed by Metrolinx, made up of stakeholders, including the City of Toronto and Crosslinx Transit Solutions (CTS), the Eglinton Crosstown’s private partner constructor.
