The owners of the new store being built at 435 North Avenue, New Rochelle (NY) have offered their showroom windows facing North Avenue as venues for public art.
They are seeking a local artist who would like to submit a design for consideration. The winning artist will receive a $2500.00 prize and have the opportunity of overseeing the installation of his or her work. The winning art submission will be chosen both by the owners and the Municipal Arts Commission of the City of New Rochelle, who are the sponsoring parties.
Content matter of the design is up to the artist, but should have relevance to New Rochelle and be suitable for the site. All received designs will be subject to the approval of the owners and the MAC and preference will be given to New Rochelle artists.
The artist is not responsible for installing the art, but his or her design will be reproduced and applied to the surface of the windows. Each of the 14 window panels is 48″ wide by 108″ high. Please look over the windows of the building to be sure you take into consideration how your artwork will look in proportion. Art application areas are the front windows only. No other art or graphics applied to any other areas of the building but the facade windows is allowed.
Deadline: Tuesday, June 30, 2015.
Winners will be announced on August 15, 2015.
