This just in from Wendy Feuer, Assistant Commissioner of Urban Design & Art in New York City.
On behalf of DOT Commissioner Janette Sadik-Khan, and in partnership with the Port Authority of New York and New Jersey, we are pleased to announce a call for proposals for artwork designs that will be installed on the World Trade Center construction fence along Church Street. The
selected designer will receive $7500 for designs that will be translated onto vinyl mesh and installed by the PA NY&NJ at no expense to the artist. Proposals are due October 1, 2009. www.nyc.gov/urbanart
In addition to this opportunity, the pARTners' program track of the NYCDOT Urban Art Program is accepting proposals for new temporary art projects until Thursday September 24, 2009. Organization-artist teams are invited to submit applications for DOT-owned sites. An updated site priority list and site selection tips are available to assist organizations in selecting appropriate sites for projects on the DOT website. The organizations that are selected by DOT's art advisory committee for commissions are eligible to receive up to $5,000.
