The Rockaway Hotel and Friends of Seaside Playground (FOSP) are holding an open call for The Big Yard Mural project. “The Big Yard”, as it is known by the kids from Waterside Children’s Studio School (WCSS), is a jointly operated outdoor recreational area used by over 700 students daily and is open to the rest of the community outside of school hours.
Together with The Rockaway Hotel, FOSP seeks to raise awareness for and make improvements to this treasured community space. For The Big Yard mural project, FOSP and The Rockaway Hotel invite artists to submit a proposal to create a temporary mural that will be painted in collaboration with the students of WCSS as well as local residents through a community painting day. All submissions will be reviewed by a committee composed of project organizers from FOSP, WCSS, the 7G Foundation, The Rockaway Hotel, NYC Parks, and a community representative from the Rockaway Artist Alliance. The selected artist will be awarded an artist fee of $10,000 in addition to a budget for materials up to $4,500. The submission deadline is June 1st, 2020 at midnight and the selected artist will be announced on June 22nd, 2020.
