Haven Plaza Bollard Beautification Project

Columbia University Irving Medical Center has partnered with the New York City Department of Transportation (NYCDOT) NYC Plaza Program in their efforts to create neighborhood plazas and transform city streets into vibrant, social public spaces. The NYC Plaza Program is a key part of the City’s effort to ensure that all New Yorkers live within a 10-minute walk of quality open space.
Under this partnership CUIMC will oversee the implementation of Haven Plaza. Haven Plaza is an interim pedestrian plaza located on Haven Avenue between Fort Washington Ave and 169th Street that opened to the community on July 1, 2019. Haven Plaza, will be one of 73 plazas across New York City, aiming to provide and expand green open space, enhance pedestrian mobility, and increase community engagement for the 15,000 individuals that use this corridor on a daily basis. The plaza is much more than a campus center, it is a community space to be enjoyed by neighborhood residents and visitors.

The Northern Manhattan Arts Alliance (NoMAA), in collaboration with NY–Presbyterian – The Allen Hospital, is seeking submissions for NoMAA’s next exhibition entitled “The Art of Healing”. Guest-curated by Gabriel de Guzman (Curator of Visual Arts at Wave Hill), this exhibition will present work by uptown artists who are exploring the theme of healing, whether figuratively, conceptually, literally, or abstractly.

The body is remarkable for its ability to heal, as evidenced by the outstanding work at the Allen Hospital. During uncertain times, it is equally important for the psyche to remain healthy as well. Artists are invited to submit works that evoke the idea of healing and that investigate this dual capacity for corporal and emotional renewal. In the context of this place of healing, restoring patients to well-being is as much an everyday occurrence as it is an extraordinary one.

Timeline:

  • Submission deadline: 26 September 2017
  • Notification: 11 October
  • Drop off and installation: 19 October
  • Opening: 24 October

Submit your proposal ►

The New Bench is a series of public art projects that challenge our ideas around parks, communal places and how we co-exist within these spaces. Artists are invited to conceptualize a park bench; challenge how the bench encourages or discourages conversation and interaction; attempt to re-invent the bench to be more inclusive in respect to age, size, and abilities; investigate the very definition(s) of “bench” and how that plays a role in our perception and positioning of the bench within various cultures; and/or explore how a bench affects access or cross-generational exchanges. Submission deadline: 25 July 2017.
