Paths to Pier 42 is a proposal for a series of temporary art/educational/design installations and public events along the East River Waterfront that will take place in the summer of 2013. The Lower East Side Waterfront Alliance is organizing this participatory process to increase access and create temporary public uses while areas of the waterfront from the Brooklyn Bridge to East River Park are awaiting capital improvements.
Below is the full timeline:
Release of closed RFP to artists and designers.
Deadline for applications; juried selection process
Artists/designers meet with Lower East Side Waterfront Alliance members, advisory committee and community members.
Community Day in conjunction with the New Museum, Ideas City 2013.
