Long Island City, NY - City University of New York, School of Law

CUNY School of Law Design and Installation of Artwork

Project Location: CUNY School of Law, Long Island City, NY
Project Budget: $100,000
Deadline: September 15, 2011, 12:00 p.m.

The City University Construction Fund is seeking an Artist to design and install a site-specific art installation as part of the new CUNY School of Law facility in Long Island City. The purpose of this project is to create a dynamic and exciting artwork which complements and enhances the ground floor space in the school’s new building. The location of the art work is on a large wall in the “beacon”, a multilevel space adjacent to a new glass staircase, design elements meant to serve as the physical pulse/heart of the new School of Law.

The School of Law is one of the City University of New York’s five professional schools and is one of the premier public interest law schools in the country. The School’s mission is to graduate outstanding public interest attorneys and their motto, "Law in the Service of Human Needs," permeates law school life. This dedication to public service and social justice is reflected in design elements in the new facility and should be captured in the art work commissioned for the space.

The School of Law’s new facility will create a home for the entire school that will consist of state of-the-art classrooms, law clinics, community spaces, gallery space, a library and auditorium. The new building will be approximately 200,000 GSF and will replace an outdated facility in Flushing, New York. The project is entering the construction phase with substantial completion scheduled for spring of 2012.

The total art project budget is $100,000, including design fees, fabrication, installation costs and all other related fees, sub-consultant costs and material costs.
