The NYC DOT Art Program invites emerging and established artists and graphic designers to submit proposals for the spring 2014 Barrier Beautification open call to beautify barrier sites in all five boroughs with colorful murals. Over the past few years, DOT and New York Cares have produced 25 temporary murals on barrier sites around the City.
Selected artists receive a design honorarium of $2,000 and a materials fee of $500 to cover costs to produce stencils. In addition, the agency, in partnership with NY Cares, provides supplies to paint the murals onto the barriers.
All proposals must include the Barrier Beautification application form, 1 conceptual design, 3 images of past work and an artist resume. See the complete submissions guidelines.
Postmark deadline: Friday 7 March 2014
