Launched in October 2008, the New York City Department of Transportation’s Art Program invigorates the City’s streetscapes with engaging temporary art installations. The Program partners with community-based organizations and artists to present murals, sculptures, projections and performances on plazas, fences, barriers, bridges and sidewalks for up to 11 months. Projects are presented within four program tracks: Arterventions, Barrier Beautification, Community Commissions and Art Display Case Exhibit. As part of the Art Display Case program track, twenty cases host rotating exhibitions that move throughout the five boroughs. Ten of these cases are temporarily positioned in Downtown Manhattan. DOT Art partners with institutions, like LMCC, and individual artists to curate the cases.
