Grand Central Terminal is one of New York City’s most beloved monuments – and it will celebrate its centennial in 2013. A year-long series of events and projects —from art commissions and exhibitions to presentations and performances — is in the works to mark the event. The Architectural League, working in partnership with the New York Transit Museum, will help create a sketchbook to be published by Moleskine. This sketchbook will feature historic material from the Transit Museum’s archives, along with up to 20 drawings and sketches by contemporary architects and designers selected by a distinguished jury. The Architectural League invites you to submit a sketch or drawing that captures and/or re-imagines Grand Central, representing or evoking what this iconic building means to you. Winning entrants will be awarded $250 for the use of their drawing.
REGISTRATION DEADLINE:July 3rd, 2012
SUBMISSION DEADLINE:July 3rd, 2012
Winning entrants will be awarded $250 for the use of their drawing.
Submissions will be reviewed by a jury of architects, representatives of the Architectural League and theNew York Transit Museum, and representatives of the Grand Central Centennial Committee.
