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 interest in glass and found objects has allowed me to re-immerse myself in the world of toys, this time with a more mature twist. As I refer to my most sacred toys, I try to evoke universal images. There is a compelling irony as I create symbolic toys, which ask to be touched and manipulated, from glass, an extremely fragile material. I manipulate glass, recycle and integrate it with well-worn artifacts from the past, which are often perceived as useless in today's culture. This gives discarded items renewed purpose. As we interact tentatively with these objects they take us back to our most early memories while connecting us to other societies and eras.
