New York City
- This summer, the world's most visited attraction will become a spectacular art exhibition.
On June 18, more than a dozen of the most iconic video signs in Times Square
will be made into an immense display of art.
In concert with the Times Square Alliance and curatorial partner Chashama, a non-profit group for creative space transformation, Artists Wanted has produced "Art Takes Times Square," a worldwide call for entries searching for inspired works by artists, designers, photographers and all creative talents from across the globe to determine one creative visionary whose artwork - in an opportunity of a lifetime
- will receive a radiant presentation on Times Square's digital billboards before millions of viewers this summer.
Participation is free and open to anyone of 18+ years of age. Submissions will be accepted through May 25, 2012 up to 12 midnight. Artists Wanted is also awarding $16,000 in cash grants and printing a limited edition book on selected artists from the competition.
Already, thousands of artists from 168 countries have applied and the public at large is invited to help choose the winner. Participants include Rossella Vanon
, Fidencio Martinez
, and Carter Hodgkin
