Parks’ Art & Antiquities Department invites New York City–based emerging artists to submit a proposal for the Clare Weiss Emerging Artist Award. Clare Weiss was the Public Art Curator for the New York City Parks Department.
The annual award is granted to one artist who submits the most compelling proposal for an outdoor sculpture for Tappen Park in Staten Island. This location has been determined based on its visibility and its proximity within a neighborhood underserved by public art; the location changes annually. The sculpture will be exhibited for a maximum of one year.
No proposals for sculptures previously exhibited will be accepted.
The award recipient will receive $10,000. The recipient is highly encouraged to visit the site, as well as procure in-kind support and other additional funding necessary to support a one-year outdoor installation.
Submissions are due 15 December 2012.
See the complete guidelines on the Parks and Recreation website.
