(New York NY)
DEADLINE: Friday, January 6, 2012 (due by 5pm) INSTALLATION: Friday, May 25, 2012 (subject to change) THE AWARD Clare Weiss (1967-2010) was the Public Art Curator for New York City’s Department of Parks and Recreation. During her tenure she curated more than 100 outdoor public art installations throughout the city and organized complex, thought-provoking and visually compelling thematic exhibitions for the Arsenal Gallery. Clare’s passion, humanity, energy, courage, and collaborative zeal were valued by all who knew her. The Clare Weiss Emerging Artist Award will be granted annually to one emerging artist who submits the most compelling proposal for an outdoor sculpture in a New York City park. The location will change annually and will be determined based on the site’s visibility and proximity within a neighborhood underserved by public art. Joyce Kilmer Park in the Bronx has been selected as the 2012 location. There are several sites within the park that can be considered. A map and photographs of the sites can be found on the Parks website listed below. The sculpture will be exhibited for a maximum of one year. Artists submitting proposals are strongly encouraged to visit the specified location at Joyce Kilmer Park before submitting a proposal. Applicants must take into account the site’s terrain and submit proposals that will stand up to the park’s particular urban outdoor environment. Sculptures installed in New York City’s Parks must meet safety requirements and be able to withstand the effects of weather and public interaction. No proposals for sculptures previously exhibited will be accepted. This award is open to New York City-based emerging artists only. DETAILS The chosen recipient will be granted an award in the amount of $7,000. The recipient is highly encouraged to procure in-kind support and other additional funding necessary to support this installation. The Award recipient shall be solely responsible for the installation and removal of the artwork and shall provide at his or her sole cost and expense, all labor, services, and supervision necessary. Additional expenses the artist will be responsible for include fabrication, insurance and maintenance. At the end of the award term, the artist is responsible for returning the park location to its original condition. This project must adhere to Parks Department specifications for public art. The Parks Department will assist the awarded artist with technical logistics such as permitting and site specifications. The artist will be responsible for engineering documents if they are necessary. The Award recipient will be selected through an open application process. Proposals will be reviewed by a jury comprised of an artist, an independent curator, and a Parks Department representative. Proposals will be judged according to artistic and creative merit and suitability to the site. ELIGIBILITY Proposals will only be accepted from New York City-based emerging artists— artists who have specialized training in their field (not necessarily gained in an academic institution), who are at an early stage in their career, and who have created a modest independent body of work.
