Times Square Arts

Emerging Program member

Residency at the Crossroads is a new cross-disciplinary and collaborative residency program, in which artists are invited to experiment and engage with Times Square’s unique urban identity and users. Launching in Summer 2015, the program will host a series of 4 three-month residencies for New York City-based artists, infusing artists into the thriving urban commercial district of Times Square in order to creatively investigate its identity and usage through observation, experimentation, engagement and documentation.

Visited by 350,000+ users per day, Times Square is experienced by an incredibly diverse population of tourists, employees and residents. However, its very transformation and economic success have severely diminished the number of artists residing in the district. This residency aims to bring local artists’ creative perspectives back ot the district, offering nuance to the Times Square story while encouraging a new generation of artists to work in the public realm.

Individual applicants or small collaborative groups of artists based in New York City may apply for the 2015-16 Residency at the Crossroads. The residency is open to artists of all disciplines who are interested in working in the public realm, not just those who already consider themselves public artists. Eligible applicants include visual artists, writers, poets, architects, designers, musicians, filmmakers, composers and choreographers. Multi-disciplinary collaborators are encouraged; the selection process aims to represent the greatest diversity of applicants and art forms. Details about future opportunities will be released by July 15 on Also for more information, visit

This program is generously supported by the National Endowment for the Arts.
