Enter the Second Annual Curate NYC Art Competition


Attention, emerging artists! The second annual Curate NYC competition launches on October 6, 2011:

The judges – which are comprised of New York City-based arts professionals  will select 150 works to be reproduced as 11 x 6 inch postcards and exhibited at Rush Arts Gallery + Resource Center in Chelsea.

Five galleries - one per borough - will also curate and exhibit their own shows of actual works by Curate NYC artists. The gallery exhibitions will run from December 1 to February 1, 2012, and additional entries will be featured in special online exhibitions on the project website, curated by noted museum curators and gallery directors.

This is a unique opportunity for NYC-based artists to gain exposure in galleries across the City and, starting this year, sell their work on the Curate NYC site itself. Not only will Curate NYC artists reach a new audience, but also New York City will develop its emerging artisans who will continue to evolve the City's culture and creative landscape.

Only New York City visual artists may apply, and proof of a New York City address is required. Artwork can be submitted for consideration at Curate NYC's website, beginning today through October 31, 2011.

Find out more by viewing the press release and visiting Curate NYC.
