Bloomberg Philanthropies: Public Art Challenge

The Challenge encourages mayors to partner with artists, elevating the value of including the creative sector when developing solutions to significant urban issues. Submissions are encouraged from all artistic disciplines, including visual and performing arts and multimedia projects. The lead applicant should be a city of at least 30,000 residents. The application deadline is April 19, 2018. Visit the Public Art Challenge website to learn more about the program and to submit an online application.
