Arts on the T
The MBTA permits musical performances at a number of subway stations in metro Boston. Musicians in stations must have a license and remain in designated areas.
We also host live musical performances in select stations to bring entertainment and share joy with riders as they travel the T.
Fan Favorite Friday
Every Friday, we spotlight our favorite MBTA-themed posts. Tag @thembta on Instagram and we’ll DM you with the details.
Since 1967, the MBTA has enlisted the help of local artists to bring character to our system. When you ride with us, you'll find more than 100 pieces of artwork featured on 6 of our transit lines.

There are currently no open calls for station construction projects. View some of our previous solicitations for integral art to get a sense of how they work. Check this page for upcoming projects.
The MBTA is an iconic part of the Boston cityscape. Our transit system has appeared in many films set in the area.
