LMCC provides support for individual artists and arts
organizations while fostering public participation in
the arts through free events in the performing,
visual, and new media arts in the financial district
and throughout the diverse neighborhoods and cultural
communities of Manhattan. 

The Manhattan Community Arts Fund is part of the

York City Department of Cultural Affairs (DCA), the
Office of the Manhattan Borough President, and the
Manhattan Delegation of the City Council.


Supported by Jerome Foundation and the New York State Council on the 
Arts, Franklin Furnace awards grants between $2,000 and $5,000 to 
performance artists, allowing them to produce major works anywhere in 
the State of New York.  Artists from all areas of the world are 
invited to apply.

Franklin Furnace offers artists an honorarium (this year of $5,000) 
and a residency facilitated by Franklin Furnace, for a 2-4 month 
duration at a physical or online venue appropriate to your proposed 
work.  For THE FUTURE OF THE PRESENT 2003, we hope to continue to 
expand the technology available to our artists through Parsons and 
beyond. The residencies may take place in the Spring or Fall of 2003. 
Artists who are interested in developing new artwork for the Internet 
are encouraged to apply.

See below for details on HOW TO APPLY.

Franklin Furnace has no curator; each year a new panel of artists 
reviews all proposals. We believe that this peer panel system allows 
all kinds of artists from all over the world an equal shot at 
presenting their work. All applicants are automatically considered 
for both categories of awards.  Every year the panel changes, as the 
definition of "emerging artist," the notion of “live art on the 
Internet,” and the definition of "performance art" itself changes, so 
if at first you don't succeed, try again.

ART has boosted the careers of such emerging artists as Papo Colo, 
Karen Finley, John Fleck, Holly Hughes, Cathy Weis, Pamela Sneed, 
Murray Hill, Tanya Barfield and Patty Chang.

This year's esteemed selection panel consisted of artists and 
curators Patty Chang, Garland Farwell, Zhang Ga, Carmin Karasic, 
Christiane Paul and Mark Tribe.  This year's Fundwinners are Tish 
Benson, Christine Carson, George Ferrandi, Stanya Kahn, Cary 
Peppermint and Tadej Pogacar. THE FUTURE OF THE PRESENT 2002 artists 
are Kathleen Brandt and Brian Lonsway, Jeff Gompertz, and G.H. 
Hovagimyan. The full schedule and project descriptions are available 
on our website).

as clear and complete as possible. You may also send a more detailed 
description of your proposed work.

Deadline February 15, 2002
innovative, experimental public projects by emerging artists living 
and/or working in New York State

Public Art Fund presents

In the Public Realm

An opportunity for emerging artists to develop and site experimental 
public art in New York City.

In the Public Realm is an opportunity for emerging New York artists 
to undertake the challenge of creating a temporary work in a public 
space. Up to seven emerging artists will be selected by a 
distinguished panel of artists, critics, and arts professionals and 
commissioned by the Public Art Fund to develop formal proposals for 
public art projects. From these proposals, the Public Art Fund will 
select three artists to realize their work in the coming year.

Public Art Fund Inc. is a non-profit arts organization that presents 
the work of contemporary artists in New York's public spaces, 
providing alternative venues in which to create and view art. The 
Public Art Fund, over the past twenty years, has acted as a 
facilitator and advocate for artists and their work. By bringing new 
artworks into the public realm, the Public Art Fund provides a unique 
forum and support structure for artists to realize their artistic 
vision, while simultaneously increasing public access to contemporary 

What it is

In the Public Realm is a program of the Public Art Fund designed to 
encourage innovative, experimental public projects by emerging 
artists living and/or working in New York State. Artists selected 
through the program will make proposals, develop their work in 
relation to urban conditions, and ultimately present their work in 
the complex arena of public life in New York City.

Artists are encouraged to investigate the physical, social, and 
psychological nature of the urban environment throughout the diverse 
neighborhoods of New York City. Previous experience of working in 
public spaces is not essential for selection in this program.

How it happens

PHASE ONE February 2002
Commission Proposals

In February 2002, an Advisory Committee of artists, critics, 
curators, and experts in contemporary art will select up to nine 
artists to develop formal proposals for a public art project. Artists 
will be selected on the basis of materials submitted (see What to 
Submit). The selected artists will each receive $1,000 to create a 
formal proposal. Investigating potential sites and communities in New 
York City for their proposed project, artists will develop working 
drawings, prepare a maquette, and present an accurate budget.

PHASE TWO Summer 2002
Commission Projects

In the summer of 2002, the selected artists will present their 
proposals to the Public Art Fund. The Public Art Fund will choose up 
to three projects for realization. Those artists selected to create 
projects will receive $7,500 towards fabrication and installation, 
based on the finalized project budget and an artist fee of $2,500.

PHASE THREE Spring and Fall 2003
In the Public Realm exhibition

The selected projects will be exhibited the following year, opening 
in the spring and fall of 2003. Projects may be exhibited for up to 
one year.

What to Submit

Artists interested in this program are invited to submit the 
following materials

Up to ten 35mm slides of recent and/or current work in a clear 
plastic slide sheet. Each slide must be clearly labeled with your 
name(s), title, date, media, dimensions, and the TOP indicated. 
Please include a slide description sheet with corresponding numbers. 
Larger format transparencies, photographs, and drawings will not be 
considered. Do not submit original work.

Current resume, including name, address, telephone number, and email address.

A brief statement of interest (no more than 300 typewritten words). 
This should be a brief statement about your work that the panel may 
refer to when viewing slides, or issues and concepts that surround 
your work. This statement will be considered by the Advisory 
Committee as an indication of the direction your work might take 
should you be selected. Please do not submit a formal proposal.

A self-addressed stamped envelope large enough to return submitted 
materials containing the correct amount of postage (stamps only, no 
postage meter strips). Submissions without S.A.S.E. will not be 
returned and pick-ups are not permitted.

Optional materials may include one -" VHS videotape. The Advisory 
Committee will review up to three minutes of your tape. Clearly mark 
the outside of the tape with your name and title(s) of the work(s), 
and cue the tape to the segment you want the Committee to review.

When to submit

Materials must be received at the Public Art Fund's office by 500 
p.m. on Friday, February 15, 2002 (postmarks are not acceptable). 
Hand deliveries will be accepted.
