The New York City Department of Cultural Affairs, Mayor’s Office of Recovery and Resiliency and Council Member Carlos Menchaca are accepting submissions from professional artists for a temporary art commission in Red Hook, Brooklyn. The focus of this project is “climate change” and the deadline to apply has aptly been set for Earth day, April 22nd. Goals to consider for any artist interested in submitting are as follows:
- Addresses climate change and sea level rise
- Engages youth in the design or creative process
- Educates and inspires residents of Red Hook and the city in era of vast climate change challenges
- Invites social interaction and shared experience
- Resonates with people of diverse backgrounds, both within the neighborhood and beyond
- Is durable and requires little or no maintenance
- Must be located in an area that is accessible to the public
