DOT, in collaboration with New York Cares, invites individual artists or artist teams to submit proposals to produce murals for concrete barriers that typically separate bicycle lanes from lanes of vehicular traffic. DOT selects project sites and, together with New York Cares, provides all project materials. DOT oversees design and project implementation. Artists are responsible for producing stencils to translate their designs onto the barrier sites. Hundreds of New York Cares volunteers assist the selected artists with painting their designs. Murals remain installed for 11 months. Artists are eligible to receive up to $2,500 toward direct project costs.
Current Deadline: Friday 8 February 2013
