NEA Grant for Mid-Market

New, 4 comments

Today is proving to be a public arts-heavy day. According to the City Insider, the National Endowment for the Arts has jumped on the Mid Market bandwagon with a $250,000 grant to install "an interactive, monumental artwork" on the vacant lot on 8th Street, across from UN Plaza. As part of a city-led $1.2 million sprucing plan, the NEA grant will go toward two art installations featuring "lasers or LED Lights" and other programs. Who knows, maybe this time really is different.
