While the Purple Line is not expected to open until 2022, the public can still get a sneak peek at what the stations will look like.

Purple Line Transit Partners, the team working to build the new 16-mile line between Bethesda and New Carrollton, is running Art-In-Transit. This $6 million program is allowing approximately 80 artists to submit proposals for public art projects in the Purple Line’s 21 stations.

In mid-May, community members and a selection committee composed of MTA and Purple Line Transit Partners officials will select the winning designs, according to Bethesda Magazine.

Below, take a look at what artworks have been proposed so far.
