This initiative will conclude with a long-term hanging sculpture installation in the Harborside Atrium. The installation will be funded by Mack-Cali Realty Corporation.
Artists are encouraged to submit proposals for either new projects or an existing piece that would work in the Harborside Atrium. The only media accepted will be installations that can be hung from the ceiling. Artists and artist collaboratives may propose projects. Work must be site specific.
One piece will be selected; the decision will depend on the budget of the proposals, the overall design, and installation requirements. The selected projects must be ready to be either unveiled or installed before the Jersey City Artist Studio Tour on October 7, 2016.
