Brief Description

The Lexington Avenue Public Art Project is intended to reflect the neighborhood identity of Lexington Avenue and to celebrate the community's collective effort to preserve its century-old storefronts and architectural treasures. The piece should reflect the whimsical, dynamic energy of the neighborhood, as well as the significance of the grass-roots initiative that was ultimately responsible for its astute and active preservation. The public art piece chosen must complement surrounding architecture and the installation must be durable and meet all safety codes. Because of the site's bustling, pedestrian nature, all proposed designs should not impede sidewalk or crosswalk foot traffic or block parking in the area.
