    Department: Charlotte Area Transit System (CATS)


The Charlotte Area Transit System (CATS) Art in Transit Program is inviting qualified conservators to submit proposals to evaluate and restore a sculpture by the late artist Dennis Oppenheim. The mixed-media sculpture was installed at the Tyvola Station on the LYNX Blue Line Light Rail in 2007.

The purpose of this Request for Proposal (RFP) is to identify a qualified conservation professional and select the candidate with expertise needed to restore the sculpture to the artist’s original intent. CATS is a department of the City of Charlotte, who owns and operates the city’s public transportation modes including light rail, streetcar and bus transit. Art in Transit (AiT) is a program within CATS that is dedicated to the integration of public art within CATS’ capital projects. Art in Transit is responsible for coordination and oversight of the installation as well as the care and maintenance of the CATS public art collection.
