The Creative Time Emerging Artist Open Call is a biennial initiative that offers early-career artists based in NYC the opportunity to create their first major socially engaged public artwork. Following the resounding success of the inaugural edition, which culminated in Risa Puno’s The Privilege of Escape, the organization is now accepting proposals for public art projects.
The Open Call is open to proposals from emerging artists, regardless of age, at a critical career juncture in which the opportunity to experiment and receive resources from a major arts organization would be impactful. Artists must have experience conceiving and executing works or projects, but have not yet received substantial support from a major arts institution. Applicants must be over 21, and based in the New York City area.
The extended deadline for proposals is March 23, 2020.
