Opportunity Description

U.S. Regional Deadline: August 22, 2022 – The 2022 Open Call for Artist Banners is now open to artists ages 18 and older who self-identify as AAPI and reside in New York City’s five boroughs. To apply, artists must submit a digital file of their five designs for the three banners (each banner is double-sided, with one side devoted to the “noguchi” logo). Enclose a CV and a one-paragraph artist statement that describes how the design addresses the theme of peace. Designs that are created specifically for this proposal will be prioritized above designs that are appropriated from artists’ previous artwork. Designs should be completed and ready for printing.

The Noguchi Museum—chartered as Isamu Noguchi Foundation and Garden Museum—was founded and designed by acclaimed artist Isamu Noguchi (1904–1988) for the display of his life’s work. Opened in 1985 and located in Long Island City, Queens, in a converted industrial building with a serene outdoor sculpture garden, the Museum is considered to be one of Noguchi’s greatest achievements. Today, the mission of the Museum is to advance the understanding and appreciation of Noguchi’s art and legacy. It manages the world’s most extensive collection of Noguchi’s artworks in addition to his complete archives and Catalogue Raisonné. Through its rich collection, exhibitions, and programming, the Museum facilitates scholarship and learning for audiences of all ages and backgrounds.
