The winning designs of the Urbancanvas competition

Mayor Michael Bloomberg announced today the four winners of the Urbancanvas Design Competition, a contest to help beautify New York City’s urban landscape with art at construction sites. The competition challenged professional artists and designers to create artwork to be placed on temporary protective structures at construction sites. The winning designs — which were evaluated by a jury and voted on by the public — were “Breathing Wall” by Monika Bravo; “Color Mesh” by Mauricio Lopez and Jess Ross, “My Urban Sky” by Jen Magathan and “Green Screen” by Corinne Ulmann. The four artists will each receive $7,500. “Keeping New York City’s urban landscape an interesting, attractive place for New Yorkers and visitors has always been a priority for our Administration, and one major way we’ve done it is through public art,” said Mayor Bloomberg. “Construction sites are a reality of a healthy, growing city, and through the urbancanvas competition, we’ll help make these temporary structures more exciting, attractive and informative.” TRD
