“A New View” is all about envisioning a future for the city, with art playing a central role in reinforcing Camden as a place for creativity and innovation", says Camden Mayor Frank Moran. The City of Camden, Cooper's Ferry Partnership, and Rutgers-Camden Center for the Arts welcome applications from visual and performing artists with a track record of demonstrating their ability to work at a scale commensurate with outdoor sites, using materials, spaces and time in a transformative way to reinforce the perception of the city as a place of creative possibility. Local artists are encouraged to apply, especially those who have had experience with meaningful community engagement in the creation or interpretation of artwork. Six sites in Camden will be transformed by public art. Grant funding will be used to support the temporary installations as well as programming throughout the end of the project in October 2020.
