*The Lower East Side Partnership in collaboration with the Essex Market are accepting submissions for a very unique and highly visible artwork to be installed at the new market space set to open early this spring. The canvas for this public art installation is located above the entryway to the new Essex Market’s demonstration and teaching kitchen. An estimated 700,000 shoppers and visitors will pass through the facility, not to mention the thousands of people that will be able to view this artwork from the street day and night.
They’re excited to work with an artist whose design will add visual impact and draw attention to this historic marketplace. If you are an experienced artist, and especially if you have a connection to the Essex Street Market or Lower East Side, we encourage you to review the details of our open call and submit your design by February 18, 2019.
SUBMISSIONS DUE ON 2.19.18
