Artists Sought for Summertime Residency Inside Mobile Studio at Seward Park
Seward Park continues its path toward showcasing more art programming. We’ve already seen the placement of the “Constellation” seating arrangement outside the libary, and news of an artistic homage to vanishing storefronts by photographers James and Karla Murray.

The Seward Park Conservancy (park stewards) this week announced its participation in a community-engaged art project spearheaded by ArtBuilt. Indeed, the park is one of three sites chosen for the 2018 “Studio in the Park” residency program, which provides creatives with a 150 square-foot mobile studio space to work.
Area artists are now encouraged to submit proposals with a deadline of April 23. The winning design will be installed on July 1 and remain on display until August 15.
More from their website:
Studio in the Park is a residency program operated since 2015 by Queens Museum, ArtBuilt and NYC Parks, providing an artist or artist collective use of a 150 square foot mobile studio space, situated in an NYC public park, to carry out a community engaged art project over the course of 6 weeks. In 2018, project sites will be: Seward Park in Lower Manhattan; Railroad Park in Morrisania, Bronx; and Flushing Meadows Corona Park (adjacent to Queens Museum).
The ArtBuilt Studio in the Park residency began in 2015 in partnership with the Queens Museum. With the receipt of a prestigious OUR TOWN grant from the NEA, we will expand this residency to all five boroughs in 2018 and 2019.
