A committee is reviewing hundreds of submissions to create public art in stations of Honolulu's planned rail system.

The Honolulu Authority for Rapid Transportation says more than 400 art submittals were received by last week's deadline, which was extended by a week.

The authority put out a nationwide call for artists for the $5 million public art program. The project will highlight work created by artists who have a strong understanding of and affinity for Hawaii's history and culture.

The art will be displayed at the 21 stations along the route that will connect Kapolei with Ala Moana Center. The art will also be displayed at the train control center in Waipahu.

After review by the transit art committee, those who qualify will compete for 25 art opportunities.
