Garment District Public Arts – Call for Artists
The Garment District Alliance (GDA) is seeking artists interested in submitting their qualifications, preliminary concepts, and examples of their work to be considered for a temporary public art installation in the Winter 2015/16 on the outdoor plazas along Broadway in Manhattan’s Garment District.
Deadline: 27 May 2015
To enhance the public environment and to increase community access to art, the GDA regularly presents art installations on the public plazas along Broadway. As part of the selection process, the GDA is inviting artists – with preference giving to those living, working, or operating in New York City – to submit qualifications, including examples of their recent work. Project concepts for consideration are welcome but not required at this stage.
As one of NYC’s most-traveled corridors in the heart of midtown, the Garment District Plazas provide international exposure and tremendous media opportunity. The selected artist will receive a $5,000 design and installation management fee.
The Garment District Alliance has a multi-faceted public arts program, which has included 11 arts festivals, six major public installations on the plaza, and over 150 other installations, performances and art events. We’re interesting by showing an eclectic mix of interesting artists in a variety of venues.
