Queens-based artists can now apply for the opportunity to have their temporary art installations featured at Flushing Meadows Corona Park next year.
Artists have until Dec. 16 to submit their proposals for the Art in the Parks: Alliance for Flushing Meadows Corona Park Grant, which supports the creation of site-specific artworks by artists for two designated locations within the park.
The chosen recipients will be announced in February 2019 and granted $5,000 to create artwork addressing the theme of Flushing Meadows Corona Park: A Park for the Future.
The artwork will be installed next summer and will be on display for up to one year. Grant recipients will be selected through an open application process and chosen by a committee of art professionals, as well as New York City Parks and community representatives.
Installations will be presented in the possible following entrance locations: Meridian Road and Meadow Lake Road, West Entrance; Roosevelt Avenue; 111th Street at 49th Avenue; College Point Boulevard and 58th Road; Corona Avenue and Horace Harding Expressway; and Lawns around Meadow Lake.
Proposals should be emailed to NYC Parks Art & Antiquities at artan
