The Garment District Alliance (GDA) is seeking artists interested in submitting their preliminary concepts, qualifications and examples of their previous work to be considered for a large-scale temporary wall mural on a publicly accessible exterior wall of the Port Authority Midtown Bus Terminal (PAMBT) in Manhattan’s Garment District. As New York City re-opens and welcomes back its workforce and visitors, GDA, in cooperation with PAMBT, is proposing to create a more inviting entry into the City along 40th Street between 8th and 9th Avenues. Our goal is to make our public realm welcoming and visually appealing with positive image-driven messaging. The PAMBT location, which is the world’s busiest bus terminal, also experiences extraordinary
vehicular traffic from the Lincoln Tunnel and as such is one of the first sights for people as they enter New York. Additionally, there are six hotels facing the mural site and another 44 hotels in the area hosting national and international visitors. To enhance the neighborhood environment, to increase community
access to art, and to provide a positive first impression through compelling and uplifting imagery, the GDA is seeking to commission the installation of a mural on the PAMBT. The selected mural design will be installed in Fall 2021. The selected artist will be responsible for designing the mural imagery and working with the GDA and the PAMBT in developing and executing an installation plan.
