This call for submissions is for the BWAC-CFAL Art on Loan program for 2017-2018.
Because of the great success of the last opening/fundraiser they have asked us to continue this program for a third year a juried exhibition of work from BWAC members that will be shown in the law offices of The Center for Appellate Litigation located at 120 Wall Street, 28th Floor, in New York City. The next opening will again be a major fundraising event. They have committed to purchase work for their permanent collection each year. Also, some of the partners and employees may individually purchase work as well. Purchases are announced at the end show.
The call is for all 2D art mediums. CFAL is looking for works that represent the urban landscape which are bold, gritty, imaginative, and creatively outside the box.
Saturday April 30, 2017 EXTENDED through Sunday, June 4, 2017.
Completed contract and payment must be received no later than: August 7, 2017

The updated 2017 Arterventions Application has been released!
DOT Art invites organization/artist teams to install existing or new artwork on DOTproperty for up to six months. Typically, projects are associated with an exhibition already on view in a gallery, or a piece that has been produced in conjunction with a local festival. The project must be fully funded by the organization prior to applying for the necessary permits. Applicants are required to select a DOT site within the five boroughs.
Organizations are responsible for engineering review (if sculptural), artwork maintenance during the display period and site remediation upon completion of de-installation. All applicants must submit photographs of the proposed site and when relevant, a conceptual design for consideration and or photographs of an existing sculptural work. Download the application here. See DOT Art site for additional info.
Art Display Cases
Twenty art display cases host rotating exhibitions that move to concrete plazas and wide sidewalks throughout the five boroughs. DOT Art partners with local institutions and artists to curate the cases. DOT prints the selected artwork on vinyl adhesives and installs the adhesives onto the exterior surface of the cases at no cost to the partner. DOT handles the installation and de-installation of the cases and restores the sites upon completion of the display period. The local organization is responsible for monitoring and maintaining the cases throughout the display period. The exhibit remains installed for a maximum of six months.
Organizations interested in providing an exhibit for the cases should email DOT Art.
Art Display Case Registry
Artists interested in presenting their artwork on Art Display Cases can now register with DOT Art by submitting an Art Display Case Registry Form. Upon submitting the form, an artist will be entered into the Art Display Case Artist Registry and may be selected to present their work in future exhibitions based upon the DOT Art Committee’s discretion. Download Art Display Case Registry Form.
