NEW ROCHELLE, N.Y. - Officials in New Rochelle are calling on local artists to show why the city is “ideally theirs” as part of new art installations that planned throughout the area.
The city’s Municipal Arts Commission and Department of Development are hosting an open call asking for artists to create a design that can be applied to a three-dimensional fiberglass replication of the new “Ideally Yours” New Rochelle city logo.
Artists have been tasked with creating a depiction of their proposed sculpture design that indicates how they envision their work in real space on the 7-foot high statues. Artists may submit singularly or as a team.
Officials said that the purpose of the project is to “add art to the public realm in downtown New Rochelle, to enliven the streetscape, create a welcoming vibrant downtown and strengthen a sense of community. Designs must be painted to the form, with Acrylic paint suggested.
Submissions are due no later than Friday, Dec. 15, with selected artists notified a month later. Complete submission criteria can be found here.
