The Noguchi Museum’s third annual Open Call for Artist Banners is now accepting submissions. Working artists ages 18+ who reside in New York City and self-identify as Asian American Pacific Islanders (AAPI) are invited to submit designs for the museum’s outdoor banners, responding to the theme of “love and labor.” 

The winning artist will receive a $3,500 honorarium and their designs will be installed on the museum’s outdoor banners for one year, from May 2024 through May 2025. Two runners-up will each receive a $2,500 honorarium. All three artists will have the opportunity to develop and lead a public program at The Noguchi Museum in collaboration with the museum’s education department during free admission Community Days in the summer of 2024. The museum will also produce short interview films with each artist to highlight their work and studio practice. 

The Noguchi Museum has organized a jury to select banner designs from three artists. The jury will include guest jurors: artist Oscar yi Hou; Justine Lee, Programs Director for Asian American Arts Alliance(A4); and June Shin, winner of the 2022–23 Open Call for Artist Banners. The jury will also include the organizing committee at The Noguchi Museum, a cross-departmental group of intergenerational staff volunteers.

Submissions are due by February 4 (11:59pm EST).
