ART TRACK:
METRO ART PROGRAMME

Art Track: Metro Art Programme is a one-year pilot project to create an expanded programme of designs for public art commissions and public engagement activities for the new Wednesbury to Brierley Hill Metro extension which is due to open to passengers in 2024.

The programme will see the creation of artist commissioned designs and project proposals for a series of permanent and temporary site-specific, context-specific, community-specific and medium-specific art commissions for Metro station stops, plazas, infrastructure, public open spaces, pocket parks, community settings and trackside sites of the Metro line.  

 

This new green transport route that connects Dudley and Sandwell with Wolverhampton, Birmingham and the wider region will be a linear catalyst for artistic responses to create Dudley’s high-quality designed environment and public realm close to the Metro.  

 

Designs for artworks and projects will be made accessible to the public in an exhibition called Dudley Futures in Summer 2022.
