Public Art Fund Launches “Art on the Grid”

No contributor

As a direct response to the COVID-19 pandemic, Public Art Fund has launched “Art on the Grid” in New York. The multi-platform city-wide project features new work by 50 New York-based emerging artists.

On view across 500 JCDecaux bus shelters and more than 1700 LinkNYC kiosks is new art made in response to the pandemic, by artists like Rafael Domenech, Chase Hall, Doron Langberg, and Sharon Madanes. On these temporary, public canvases the work explores themes such as healing and loss; community and isolation; intimacy and solitude; and the creation of a future that is more just, inclusive, and equitable.

This open-air initiative first launched on June 29 with 10 artists. The second part of the exhibition launches July 27 with the remaining 40 artists, including Marley Freeman, Ivan Forde, Anna Park, GaHee Park, Cheyenne Julien, D’Angelo Lovell Williams, and more. All were chosen by 32 nominators that were asked to submit up to three artists for consideration in order to maximize diversity. “Art on the Grid” will be on view across New York through September 20.
