Who’ll Design the New N.E.A. Logo? It Could Be You
Got something you want to express to Rocco Landesman and the National Endowment for the Arts — in a constructive, artistic way? Now’s your chance: on Monday, the N.E.A. and Mr. Landesman, its chairman, announced that they were seeking proposals for a new logo to represent the phrase “Art Works,” which Mr. Landesman has previously described as the agency’s “guiding mission.” In a statement Mr. Landesman said the logo, which will be used in print and online promotions, should represent the three meanings of the phrase: the creation of artists; the effect of art on audiences; and the contribution of artists to the economy. Proposals for the design must be submitted by email to the agency by 5 p.m. Eastern time on Feb. 26, and the selected proposal will receive a government grant of approximately $25,000. A complete list of instructions and requirements for submitting a proposal can be found here at the arts.gov Web site.
