Through the years, this celebration of creativity and the changing seasons has become a much-loved tradition for children and adults alike, featuring hands-on arts and crafts workshops for children and adults, amusements, and live entertainment.

One of the event’s most well-loved traditions is a combination of performance and traditional arts through the outdoor artwork creation: the making of free-standing murals during the Festival. This year, our theme is Exploring Your Freedom: Uniting a Nation.

We are looking for artists to create works of art that express your ideals, fears, and hopes of the future.

We are seeking artists or groups to each paint one of several 6’ high by 8’ long and 6’ high by 16’ long murals outdoors during the Festival, which will be held from 11 a.m. – 4 p.m. at the Island’s Southpoint Park and FDR Four Freedoms State Park, as well as on the lawn south of Rivercross (501 Main St.). Artists are free to arrange an earlier time to begin their work, if needed.

How to Apply: We invite you to submit a sketch of your design or any inquiries along with a title and short description of the concept and technical method. Sketches should be sized according to a 6’ high x 8’ long or 6’ high x 16’ long ratio and submitted in jpeg, PDF or hard copy format.

Please submit your sketches no later than Friday, September 14 to jessica.murray@rioc.ny.gov.

Participation in this event is free; basic paints, brushes, and a primed surface are provided! All participating artists will also receive a free festival t-shirt. Once complete, murals will stay on display on the lawn for several weeks.

Once removed from the lawn, selected works will be displayed at the Island’s Motorgate Atrium Gallery through late 2019. All artwork will remain the property of the Roosevelt Island Operating Corporation and may be displayed on Roosevelt Island to beautify the community in the future.
