The Design Trust for Public Space is now accepting submissions from photographers for the 2013 Photo Urbanism Fellowship, which will focus on "life under and around elevated infrastructure in New York City."
Application deadline: May 23, 2013
The Design Trust is an independent nonprofit organization dedicated to bringing design innovation to New York City's public spaces. We believe that photography is vital to understanding our shared environment and is the most powerful tool for illuminating New York City’s complex public realm. The Photo Urbanism program was founded in 2001 to support the creation of new work that explores the natural and built environment of New York City, and surpasses strictly editorial and documentary imagery.
The 2013 Photo Urbanism fellowship will focus on “life under and around elevated infrastructure in New York City.” The fellowship award includes a $5,000 cash prize and a book dedicated to the fellow’s work, published at the project’s conclusion (see “From Roof to Table” for an example). The Fellow will have full artistic vision over how they interpret the topic. The resulting photographs will inform the new Design Trust project, Under the Elevated, a project in partnership with the NYC Department of Transportation, and be considered for inclusion in the final project publication.
The Fellow must be based in New York City and be available to participate in meetings with the Design Trust and the Under the Elevated project team. The Design Trust will act as a resource and sounding board throughout the fellowship, providing access and assistance to sites when possible. The fellowship requires a minimum 6-month and maximum 1-year commitment.
The selection jury will be chaired by Mark Robbins, executive director, International Center of Photography and will include Iwan Baan, photographer; Susanna Sirefman, designer and Design Trust Board member; Rob Stephenson, photographer and 2011 Photo Urbanism Fellow; and Erica Stoller, director, Esto.

The 2013 Photo Urbanism fellowship is supported in part by the New York State Council on the Arts and the NYC Department of Cultural Affairs.

2014 Sunroom Project Space Application
Deadline: May 15, 2013
Information Session with the Curator of Visual Arts: Sat, April 13, 2013, 2:30pm at Wave Hill, Please e-mail email@example.com to RSVP
The Sunroom Project Space Program is a venue for New York-area emerging artists to develop a special project or new body of work to exhibit in one of the two windowed sunrooms on the ground floor of Glyndor House. Five artists will be selected for solo exhibitions in 2013. Work in all media will be considered and artists are encouraged to experiment with the parameters of traditional display and exhibition formats. The selected artists will have between six and 12 months to develop their ideas and to create new work for the project. The installation period is two days for most slots so the project needs to be installed and de-installed quickly. A meet-the-artist gallery talk will be scheduled for each artist. The selected artists will receive an honorarium of $1,500.
The floor area of the Sunroom is approximately 17 ½’ x 17 ½’ with a 10’ 8” high ceiling, and the Sun Porch’s floor area is about 16’ x 16’ with a ceiling that is 11 ½’ in height. The white Sunroom has hard plaster walls, with pairs of arched windows on two sides, and arched glass doors that open to the Sun Porch. The fourth wall has a door to the other galleries. There is a brown ceramic tile floor. The Sun Porch has windows on two sides with two brick walls, a stone floor, and four skylights. While proposed projects may include video as a component of the installation, keep in mind that both rooms have abundant natural light and cannot be completely darkened. Images of the Sunroom Project Space are available here.
Five artists will be selected for Sunroom exhibitions that will be on view for a period of six weeks each from April through November 2014.
Interested artists are strongly encouraged to visit Wave Hill before submitting an application. The gallery is open 10 AM - 4:30 PM, Tues - Sun, starting April 2.
Eligibility: Open to emerging artists residing in New York City, with a record of solid achievement and potential, for whom this opportunity might contribute to professional advancement, and who are not represented by a commercial gallery, not a student, and have not previously shown at Wave Hill.
Application Process: Applications with preliminary concepts are due on May 15, 2013, using this online application. At this point we are more interested in your approach to working here and how you would like to use the space than the actual outcome of the project.
Selection Process: A jury made up of Wave Hill’s Curator of Visual Arts, an invited curator, and a previous Sunroom artist will review the submissions and develop a short list of artists for the Curator to meet with. The curatorial staff will balance approaches and schedules to make a final selection. Decisions will be made by August 2013 and all artists will be contacted at that time.
