ArtsWestchester, in collaboration with Ginsburg Development Companies (GDC) and the City of White Plains, announces a unique opportunity for artists to create a signature site-specific public sculpture installation for 50 Main Street at the City Square Development located in Downtown White Plains, NY.
City Square is a new property in the GDC portfolio. Previously called the Westchester Financial Center, the property will be transformed into a square block mixed-use residential, office and retail center. The property sits at the gateway to White Plains, near the Bronx River Parkway and Route 119, and just steps from the White Plains Metro North Railroad Station, the most used station in the MNR system after Grand Central.
Artists are invited to submit proposals for a signature sculpture that will occupy an elevated plaza at the main entrance of 50 Main Street. The sculpture will be a landmark feature of the City Square and serve as a welcoming beacon for the White Plains’ downtown business district.
Applicants must be at least 18 years old, and live, work, or maintain a studio address in New York State. Artists are encouraged to work in durable, light-weight metals or similar materials, and may incorporate LED lighting features and/or kinetic elements. Proposals may be submitted via the online application only.
The proposal deadline is Friday, September 13, 2019 at 11:59 pm, EST. For all for other project-related inquiries, contact Logan Hanley, LHanley@artswestchester.org.
