Open Call for Billboard Proposals – 14×48

Thursday, May 11th, 2017

We are currently accepting submissions for our annual open call, and would like to share the application information with the UCLA student community.

Each chosen billboard is accompanied by a supplement which serves to bring the artists’ work into the public sphere. Previous projects have included an artist talk at the International Center of Photography, a collaboration with New York City Housing Authority residents, and classes taught at Casita Maria Center for Arts and Education, among others. Although we are based in New York, several previous artists have not been local, and we can incorporate innovative ideas from individuals in other locations.

Every year we strive to push the boundaries of how public art can exist and who it can serve. We are looking forward to this year’s submissions, and want to extend this opportunity to the next generation of artistic talent. (more…)
