NYC Department of Transportation, New York, NY, US, College Aid

DOT Art & Event Programming commissions and oversees the installation of temporary public artwork on DOT property throughout the five boroughs and curates and manages programming at annual large-scale, car-free events including, Summer Streets and Car Free Earth Day. Public art and event programming activates the public realm and enhances the quality of life for all New Yorkers. Temporary public artwork beautifies DOT infrastructure by transforming sidewalks, fences, triangles, medians, bridges, jersey barriers, step streets, public plazas and pedestrianized spaces into canvases and foundations for colorful murals, dynamic projections and eye-catching sculptures installed by artists in partnership with community based-nonprofit organizations. Event programming is presented through three categories: public art, performance and activities relating to environmentalism, outdoor recreation, arts and culture, and health and wellness. In addition, DOT Art coordinates conservation and maintenance of DOT’s permanent art collection and collaborates with the NYC Department of Cultural Affairs (DCLA) Percent for Art Program to commission permanent art as part of the Percent for Art law.
