Open Call for Artists: Chalk history in the streets!

May is Lower East Side History Month!


To celebrate, FABnyc is issuing a call for artists to help us creatively chalk specific sites in the Lower East Side with stories and images from local history. FAB will provide all historical text.


Saturday, May 1: Chalking Black histories in the LES, various locations; 11-2pm
Saturday, May 8: Chalking LES histories on Avenue B; 3 hour call, specific time TBA


Come help us spread the LES love on city sidewalks and streets this May!
Each artist will receive $125 fee for a 3 hour chalking session.


Lower East Side-based artists (from 14th Street to Canal, Bowery to the East River; including Loisaida, East Village, Two Bridges, and Chinatown) are encouraged to apply!


FABnyc will provide chalk and breakfast at the orientation.


Please submit your application by end of day on Sunday, April 11th to be considered.
