|LMCC Grants for
Art in Public Spaces
|Lower Manhattan Cultural
Council's (LMCC) Grants for Art in Public Spaces enable the creation and
presentation of art in the myriad public spaces of Lower Manhattan, including
parks, plazas, building lobbies and atria, and construction sites.|
LMCC's grants of up to $20,000 support artists and arts organizations producing
public art projects that reach beyond the typical arts audience, engage
the public in unusual ways, and take place in contexts outside the gallery,
performance hall, or theater space. Often these works are presented in
contexts where they are encountered and experienced by unintended viewers
such as pedestrians, workers, and passersby. Priority is given to new work
or to work that has not been previously presented in New York City.
