Fourth Arts Block recently announced its upcoming public art program, kicking off in April 2014, and it’s still looking for proposals. “FABLES” is the cleverly-titled endeavour, and yet another invocation of visual flavor for the Lower East Side streets.
According to the press release, it’s an “opportunity for artists to explore the Lower East Side’s living cultural heritage, rich historical legacies, and current issues in public storytelling through visual art.”
There’s some stringent criteria:
Applicant artists must live, work and/or have deep roots in the LES. Ideal applicants will be invested in a story collecting or investigative process that will delve deeply into the neighborhood’s legacy and/or current culture. Exhibits are intended to contribute to community identity and sense of place, drawing on the stories of the LES and its residents. This may include memorable cultural experiences, local traditions and collaborations, vanished cultural traditions, new beginnings, or underground movements. Artwork proposals can include: murals, collages, wheat pastes or other flat medium. In some cases, we would consider interactive new media or projections.
