NYC DOT is looking to commission local artists to transform the Sidewalk at the Broadway Junction intersection of Fulton Street and Van Sinderen Avenue, through its Community Commissions beautification progam. The local non profit partner in this installation is, Local Development Corp of East New York. The application deadline is February 15. See the program details and link to the application below.
DOT Art partners with community-based, nonprofit organizations and professional artists to present temporary public art on DOT property for up to 11 months. Artists transform streets from ordinary to extraordinary with colorful murals, dynamic projections and eye-catching sculptures. Sidewalks, fences, triangles, medians, bridges, jersey barriers, step streets and public plazas serve as canvases and foundations for art. Projects are presented within five program tracks: Arterventions, Art Display Case Exhibits, Asphalt Art Activations, Barrier Beautification, and Community Commissions. Special Projects are also produced throughout the year.
Artists are invited to apply to the Community Commissions 2019 open call. DOT Art is seeking temporary, site-responsive art proposals in all five boroughs for implementation in spring/summer 2019. This round, applicants may submit sculpture or mural proposals to one of five priority sites. Selected artists are qualified to receive up to $12,000 towards direct project costs in addition to engineering support. Projects are presented with support from built-in community-based partner organizations.
