Evaluating the Artist in Residence Pilot Program

We are evaluating the Artist in Residence Pilot Program with Smart Growth America, Washington State DOT, CAIR LAB, and other partners to share learnings, explore future opportunities for creative projects supporting transportation goals and document the outcomes of the Fellows projects.

Our partner, Smart Growth America, along with CAIR Lab, is launching a Transportation Artist in Residence (TAIR) Network with the support of a National Endowment for the Arts Design Grant.

For more information on Smart Growth America’s work bringing artists to transportation agencies help solve problems, visit transportation.art.



Transportation for America, a program of Smart Growth America, is an alliance of elected, business and civic leaders from communities across the country, united to ensure that states and the federal government invest in smart, homegrown, locally-driven transportation solutions. These are the investments that hold the key to our future economic prosperity.

The fellow will report to the director, arts & culture at Transportation for America, Ben Stone.

T4A will manage the Artist in Residence program, collaborate with funding partners, provide technical assistance to MnDOT during the call for artist’s process and project scoping, and to the selected fellow throughout the proposed timeline.
