The Mayor’s Office of Recovery and Resiliency, NYC Department of Cultural Affairs, and Council Member Carlos Menchaca invite you to a public meeting to kick off a community process to commission a public art project to educate the city on the impacts of climate change while envisioning New York’s future.
• This $20,000 public art project will be youth-led
• This is the first in a series of public meetings to identify which project will be funded
• We encourage residents, students, arts supporters, artists and other stakeholders to come learn more about the program and to guide the project commissioning process
• Please share this post or download a flyer to share with your networks here: http://www.nyc.gov/html/planyc/downloads/pdf/publications/RedHookPublicArt.pdf
The Red Hook Library is wheelchair accessible. To request other accommodations contact Rachel Finkelstein at RFinkelstein@cityhall.nyc.gov or (212) 676-3150 at least 48 hours in advance.
Snacks and beverages will be served

This project is part of the City’s broader education efforts around climate change and sea level rise, which include the FloodHelpNY.org campaign to educate New Yorkers on their flood risk.
