The Boston Center for the Arts is accepting applications for Occupy 539, a unique platform for artists to engage with audience through public art projects that explore ways in which people congregate and linger in public spaces. Artists are invited to submit proposals for a temporary public art project that will be exhibited on the BCA Plaza campus for Summer 2011 (July through October).
Artists from the Greater Boston area and New England are invited to apply for a $1,500 stipend to develop, produce and install the public artwork. The stipend includes costs for shipping, construction and additional support for installation into consideration. Proposals for a site-specific temporary artwork should reflect the artist’s concerns and simultaneously explore the many ways in which the flow of public traffic is transformed. Non-traditional media is welcome including video, audio and performance.
