Art in the Windows

REQUEST FOR PROPOSALS: CNY Arts in the Windows 2019

 Project Locations: SYRACUSE, NY & CORTLAND, NY                                    

CNY Arts, in partnership with the Downtown Committee of Syracuse and Cortland Downtown Partnership, is seeking proposals for CNY Arts in the Windows, a project designed to activate urban spaces through temporary installations of art in storefronts. The goals of this program are to support local artists and expand the audience for the visual arts community, energize vacant storefront properties, and enhance the streetscape. Awards will be $500 - $3,000 depending on the scale, scope, and location of the installation, and will be determined through a competitive peer panel process.

Applications will be accepted through Monday, April 22, 2019 at 4 pm.
