National Endowment for the Arts Hosts Webinar on GSA’s Art in Architecture Program and Upcoming Artist Commissions in New York

September 8, 2022

NEW YORK CITY – The National Endowment for the Arts (NEA) is hosting an informational webinar about the U.S. General Services Administration (GSA) Art in Architecture program and upcoming opportunities on Tuesday, September 13, at 1 p.m. ET.

The Art in Architecture Program oversees the commissioning of artworks for GSA-controlled Federal buildings nationwide. These artworks enhance the civic meaning of Federal architecture and showcase the vibrancy of American visual arts. GSA and NEA are collaborating to increase awareness for this program and promote relevant opportunities to artists that reflect the diverse communities of the nation.

Funded by the Bipartisan Infrastructure Law, two public art opportunities will be associated with two border station projects currently underway in the GSA's Northeast and Caribbean Region. These opportunities are in New York state.

The Land Port of Entry projects are:

  • Rouses Point
  • Trout River

As part of the webinar, attendees will learn:

  • The history and goals of the GSA Art in Architecture program.
  • How you can be considered for upcoming project opportunities
  • How to join the National Artist Registry
  • What to expect if you are selected

GSA’s Art in Architecture Program was created in 1972 and has commissioned more than 500 artworks by American artists, pieces that are permanently installed in Federal buildings throughout the United States.
