Beam Center Seeks Proposals for Visionary, Large-Scale Public Artworks

Beam Center Seeks Proposals for Visionary, Large-Scale Public Artworks

This Deadline Expired: Sunday, September 12, 2021

The Beam Center believes that all young people are capable of spectacular things. Beam Center has been proving it for 17 years in schools across NYC and at Beam Camp, where young people realize large-scale projects designed by world-class architects, artists and engineers.

Each year, Beam has conducted an international search for spectacular project ideas to be built at Beam Camp in New Hampshire. For the first time this year, Beam Center is putting out an Open Call for three big ideas for Beam Center’s three site locations:
Beam Project NH – located at Beam Camp
Beam Project GI – located at the newly launched Beam Camp City on Governors Island
Beam Project NYC – to be built in the Bronx as the next city-based public artwork

Winning proposals will be selected by a committee composed of Beam Center staff, youth, past project designers, and community members. Selected artists work with Beam’s Project Team, including Beam Staff and youth, to bring these projects to life.

Check out the 2021 NYC Beam Project to get an idea of the scale at which the Beam Center works.

My work is primarily in oils and focuses on urban street scenes and still life settings made up of vintage housewares and toys.  I am interested in all things old as I believe they have the most interesting stories to tell.  Buildings and objects from the past both bring back memories for those who have previously interacted with them, and discovery to those seeing them for the first time.  I work in a contemporary realist style, looking to bring to attention the beautiful design elements that already exist in the subjects that I paint.

Sharing the experiences I have had with race and gender is a catalyst for my work. My experience growing up very protected in a race not completely my own, was not concerning to me as a child. When I was introduced to a mixed race population that was very concerned with labeling and grouping people, the experience was unsettling. From that point, I had to think about race and culture and how they related to my daily performance.
