ArtBridge, in partnership with the Lower East Side Partnership, is looking for illustrators and graphic designers to draft a proposal that hails cycling as a vital component of urban transportation.
The installation will be printed on vinyl that will adorn the two 200 ft. fences along the bike path at the foot of the Williamsburg Bridge in the Lower East Side. It will be seen by thousands of cyclists, pedestrians, and motorists, so the artwork should be visually digestible from those various perspectives.
Proposals should be related to cycling and reflect pattern, narrative, or variations on a single graphic. However, artists should create only one proposal for one 200 ft fence; it will be duplicated and installed on both stretches of fencing.
Chosen artist will also receive an honorarium.
For this open call, Artbridge is looking for illustrators and graphic designers to draft a proposal that hails cycling as a vital component of urban transportation. You can find more details about the Open Call HERE and begin your application process HERE.
The deadline for artwork submissions is April 3, 2016 and with an anticipated installation date of mid-June.
