Rockaway Dome Rising
Snow and high winds couldn’t stop crews from putting up The Dome on Beach 94th Street and Shore Front Parkway. MOMA (Museum of Modern Art) PS1 is putting up the temporary structure and is calling for ideas to create a sustainable waterfront in Rockaway. Artists, architects, designers and creative thinkers are welcome to submit ideas about the boardwalk and open spaces. Twenty-five selected proposals will be presented publicly on-site and in a series of live presentations and lectures in April.
The competition is expected to draw ideas from around the world.
To enter the competition, you can submit a video up to 3 minutes in length to https://ps1contemporaryartcenter.wufoo.com/forms/rockaway-call-for-ideas/.
The organizers have also stated their intentions to get Rockaway involved. Not only are they encouraging locals to submit their ideas through the MOMA PS 1 website, officials have said some Rockaway reps will get jury votes to choose the winner.
Get your video cameras out and let the ideas fly ! But hurry – submissions are due by March 15th.
