Inspired by the engineering, intricate choreography, and impromptu interactions of your daily commute? Wish there was an open mic night for historians and urbanists? A show-and-tell for your creative musings on mass transit? Looking for a public platform to present your ideas to a captive audience?
Us, too. That’s why we are excited to announce PLATFORM, a new series of cross-disciplinary programs created by the public for the public. Have an idea? We’ll give you a platform. — NY Transit Museum
The New York Transit Museum is launching an open exhibition program, accepting proposals for projects devoted to any and all aspects of public transportation. The aptly named Platform program will exhibit the first winning proposal in its subway station home in downtown Brooklyn, on Thursday, April 10.
Projects can take any performative or static form -- whether you're choreographing a ballet inspired by metro drivers, making Metro-card origami or curating a gallery of subway maps, Platform wants your submissions.
Questions regarding Platform can be sent to firstname.lastname@example.org. Submissions will be reviewed by the NYTM through Tuesday, February 25 at noon (EST).
