Public art challenge for cities Thu, 16 Oct 2014 23:14:56 +0000 Bloomberg Philanthropies 
Deadline: 12/15/2014

Bloomberg Philanthropies is launching a new program to support temporary public art projects that engage communities, enhance creativity and enrich the vibrancy of cities. Bloomberg Philanthropies is inviting mayors in cities with 30,000 residents or more to submit proposals for innovative temporary public art projects that demonstrate close collaboration between artists, or arts organizations and city government. At least three cities will be selected to receive up to $1 million each over two years.

“Public art projects play a vital role in bringing new energy to cities – along with new visitors and more economic activity,” said Michael R. Bloomberg. “New York City hosted nearly 500 temporary public art installations during my time as mayor, and we saw just how powerful they can be. Bloomberg Philanthropies remains strongly committed to supporting public art and artists – and to helping more citizens experience familiar places in exciting new ways.”

As part of the program, the Bloomberg Philanthropies grant will cover development, execution and project related expenditures but will not fund 100% of project costs. The grant is intended to provide catalytic funds as part of a strong, committed consortium of supporters. Submissions for visual and performing arts, including multimedia installations, will be considered. Applications will be evaluated on their ability to develop and execute dynamic public art projects that establish or strengthen public-private partnerships between local government and other funders, and include strong audience engagement strategies as well as a commitment to evaluating outcomes and impact on the host city.

Beginning on October 13, 2014 eligible cities can submit applications. Following a review period, finalists will be selected and asked to submit a full proposal in February 2015. At least three cities will be selected in May to execute their projects over a maximum of 24 months. The application as well as more information on criteria and deadlines can be found on
