Friends of Seaside Playground (FOSP) seeks proposals for a temporary mural at Seaside Playground, located on Rockaway Beach Boulevard and B109 Street in Rockaway Park, Queens. “The Big Yard”, as it is known by the kids from Waterside Children’s Studio School (WCSS), is a jointly operated outdoor recreational area used by over 700 students daily and is open to the rest of the community outside of school hours.
We invite artists to submit a proposal to create a temporary mural that will be painted in collaboration with the students of WCSS as well as local residents through a community painting day. The selected artist will be awarded an artist fee of $10,000 in addition to a materials budget of up to $4,500.
