Artwork Proposals Approved for Dulles Rail Extension

It seems that the final completion date for the rail extension to Dulles Airport keeps getting longer, but there was some action on the effort this week. The Metro Board of Directors approved artists’ proposals for public art projects at the first five Dulles Corridor stations.

Metro is managing and coordinating the public art component for the first phase of the Dulles Corridor Metrorail station project. The Metropolitan Washington Airports Authority (MWAA) is funding the art projects at the first five Dulles extension stations.

Metro’s Art in Transit Program worked with MWAA to conduct a competition for the public art proposals for the five stations. Community representatives, the Fairfax Arts Council, art and design professionals, and Metro, MWAA and the Virginia Department of Rail and Public Transportation selected the five artist proposals out of 167 submissions. The artists are Martin Donlin for Tysons East, Ray King for Tysons Central 123, David Dahlquist for Central 7, Barbara Grygutis for Tysons West and David Wilson for Wiehle Avenue.
