Call For Art: Grand Central Madison Public Art Program

Long Island Arts Alliance (LIAA) and the MTA invite Long Island based student artists (high school and college level) to submit digital artwork for the opportunity to be featured in the new Long Island Railroad (LIRR) Grand Central Terminal, set to open in early 2023! LIAA is working with the MTA on this open call and we’d like to invite students from Long Island-based high schools and colleges to create and submit digital art projects that may be selected to appear on the screens at the grand opening of the terminal. The selected artwork will help represent depictions of Long Island through the lens of young artists and visually connect LIRR riders to their surroundings.

LIAA Joins Arts & Economic Prosperity 6

The Economic Impact of Spending by Nonprofit Arts and Culture Organizations and Their Audiences

LIAA is proud to partner with Americans for the Arts on the sixth national study of the economic impact of the nonprofit and arts culture industry, Arts and Economic Prosperity 6. This study is conducted approximately every five years to gauge the economic impact (on employment, government revenue, and household income) of spending by nonprofit arts and culture organizations and the event-related spending by their audiences.

Why Does AEP6 Matter? Statistics can only paint a part of the picture. The meaning behind AEP6 helps show the true impact of the arts and culture sector on the St. Louis region. The list below, provided by Americans for the Arts, highlights the importance of this major study.

Scholar-Artists are chosen from five disciplines: Visual Arts, Music, Theater, Dance and Media Arts. The initiative mirrors the region’s Scholar-Athlete programs. High school seniors are nominated by their school districts, and twenty are chosen to receive the program’s highest honor which includes a photo and bio published in Newsday and Newsday.com. An additional twenty students are also honored as Award of Merit recipients, receiving group recognition in Newsday.
