Open to Artists in New York, New Jersey and Connecticut

Site Location:
Demarest Kill Park, 57 New Hempstead Rd., New City, NY 10956.

The Rockland County Art in Public Places committee will purchase a sculpture for Demarest Kill Park at 57 New Hempstead Road, New City, NY 10956. The installation site is a triangular shaped, grassy area (35' x 25' at its widest dimensions) immediately inside the park entrance and adjacent to the parking lot. The sculpture will be visible from the road and sidewalk. The Park is located just north of the County Office Building Campus and just south of the intersection of New Hempstead Road and North Little Tor Road. Recent major roadway and walkway renovations have enhanced the entire area and entrance to the park.

No particular genre or theme is required. Work must be made of durable materials for outdoor sculpture that will withstand all types of seasonal weather, with minimal maintenance required. Colorful works may also enhance this site. Work may be freestanding or mounted on a base also made of a durable, weather tolerant material. The work or base should be installed to ensure stability and safety.

.   .

The selection will be made by members of the committee from existing work only.
Finalists will be notified after the deadline and a visit to see the actual work will be arranged. Commissions are awarded by the AIPP panel of arts professionals who are charged with selecting high quality artwork that reflects a diversity of cultural expression.

The purchase price may be up to $36,000 and includes all associated expenses and fees including transportation and installation by the artist.
