Socrates Sculpture Park in Queens is accepting public submissions for the billboard over its entrance for the first time.
The waterfront park and outdoor gallery is now accepting proposals for its Broadway Billboard series, which started in 1999 and has featured more than 30 works by commissioned artists on a billboard over the park's main entrance at Vernon Boulevard and Broadway.
This is the first time the series is taking proposals from the public, according to the park's open call, which asks applicants to submit an image proportional to the 10-by-28-foot billboard that relates to democracy and American identity.
"This call asks proposals to address ideas of the public, citizenship, collectivism, identity, and democratic freedoms," the description reads.
"Proposals should consider the unique elements of the site and billboard location — a public park, a space of advertising, New York City, and the diverse borough of Queens."
The park will select two designs, with the first scheduled to go on display July 4 and the second to go up in the fall.
Applications are due by midnight on April 15.
