We are currently accepting applications from NYC based emerging artists to propose a new public project. The selected artist will work closely with our team to produce the new work in spring/summer 2019. We’ll accept applications until January 18 at 11:59 PM.

This is an exciting opportunity for practicing artists to experiment in the public realm- and to produce ideas that can spark public dialogue and comment on a contemporary social issue.
