CALL FOR 2023 ARTISTS 

Now entering its sixth year, over 20 non-profit organizations will be paired with an artist facilitator to create an original work of art that addresses the following issues related to building a healthy community: MENTAL HEALTH; FOOD EQUITY; VIOLENCE PREVENTION; and WOMEN'S HEALTH.  The works will be on display at venues throughout New Brunswick, Highland Park, Metuchen, and South Plainfield NJ from January 16- April 1, 2023. 

 

Artists from across the state, representing a wide range of philosophies and mediums are encouraged to apply. Each artist will be paired with a local organization working on the above issues they care about. An honorarium will be provided to each artist for their work, as well as a stipend for art materials to support their window intervention. All participating artists will attend an Artist Facilitator training that will cover project goals and community- based art practices.  A detailed timeline will be provided to all participants.
