Call to Artists
NYC Parks invites you to submit your work for exhibition in the gallery at the NYC Park and Recreation building at Bushwick Inlet Park.
Parks is proud to be New York City’s greenest agency. The LEED Platinum building at Bushwick Inlet Park was designed with sustainability in mind and features a range of green building solutions. Parks is committed to advancing sustainability practices in park design and asks artists to share their interpretation of what it means to be sustainable. We ask artists to submit works for inclusion in the gallery space at Bushwick Inlet Park that draws on their experiences in NYC Parks in Greenpoint and Williamsburg, on the rich culture of activism and sustainability surrounding parkland in these neighborhoods.
Note that this call for submissions is for display within the building interior but strong submissions that include public art for display within the outdoor space at Bushwick Inlet Park will be considered as well. Those submissions are subject to Parks’ outdoor temporary art submission guidelines:
Submission Deadline: February 29, 2020
