Act fast, the deadline for this is approaching fast!
Grand Central Terminal, one of New York City’s most beloved monuments, 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.
The Architectural League, at the invitation of and 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 League and the Transit Museum invite 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. Submissions will be reviewed by a jury of architects, representatives of the Architectural League and the New York Transit Museum, and representatives of the Grand Central Centennial Committee. Winning entrants will be awarded $250 for the use of their drawing.
The special edition Moleskine sketchbook, featuring the winning entries and historical material, will be on sale at the Transit Museum Stores and at other book and gift stores in November 2012.
Deadline: Submissions must be received at the offices of the Architectural League of New York no later than 12 noon on Tuesday, July 3, 2012.
