Call to Artists: Public Art on Manhattanville Columbia Campus

Columbia University’s Zuckerman Institute

Deadline - March 3, 2023, 11:59 pm

Now in the 4th year of our Art in the Education Lab program,  Columbia University’s Zuckerman Institute seeks an artist to create a work that will invite and inspire community members to explore science through an artistic lens. Artists will be invited to spend time meeting with scientists at the Zuckerman Institute to inspire the creation of artwork that helps bring science to the public in novel and inspiring ways. We particularly seek artwork that will engage our local community in Upper Manhattan and the South Bronx.

Artists are invited to submit a proposal for an artwork to be presented in the Zuckerman Institute Education Laboratory, located on 129th Street and Broadway.

Budget: $10,000, inclusive of all costs related to the project, including but not limited to artist fee and expenses, supplies and installation. Payment will be made in two installments of $5,000.

Application Deadline: March 3, 2023 (11:59pm EST)

Shortlisted artists will be notified by March 13, 2023

Eligibility: Any artist living and working within New York City

We particularly welcome submissions from artists in Upper Manhattan and the South Bronx. We are strongly committed to diversity, equity, inclusion and belonging, and encourage people of color, LGBTQ+ individuals, differently-abled and neurodiverse persons, indigenous peoples, youth, seniors, and women to apply. There is no fee to apply.
