The new program, ArtSite, will award 8 artists with a commission of $4,500 each to create temporary public art in these communities, ranging anywhere from murals to performances, that illuminate the different ways art can transform a community. 
A key goal of ArtSite is to empower artists to engage on a local level, understanding that they can be a catalyst for change. QCA, along with its partners, the Jamaica Center BID in Jamaica and the 82nd street Partnership in Jackson Heights, seek to create a self sustaining supportive art culture in these communities.

“Public Art socially connects the community, and is a reflection of who, and what the community stands for. Bringing Public Art to Downtown Jamaica, will boost the authentic, vibrant and unique district of Downtown Jamaica.” – Valerie Stevens, Director of Business Services, Jamaica Center BID

QCA invites Queens based artists to submit an application through the online portal that highlights the artist’s past work and connection to the area. The review panel will consist of city agency representatives, the partner BIDs, and local arts administrators from Jamaica and Jackson Heights. 
The work of the commissioned artists will be featured in various sites, such as empty storefronts, store walls, plazas, and parks throughout Jamaica and Jackson Heights. These installations will occur or be exhibited between November 2018 and March 2019.

Application Deadline: Wednesday, June 20, 2018, 11:59 pm
