The Urban Art Program is a citywide program meant to beautify and invigorate New York streets with temporary art installations. Red Hook is one area they are looking to engage. Specifically the median at 9th Street and Hamilton Avenue. According to an email sent out by the Department of Transportation (see more of that below) they are "interested in enhancing the pedestrian environment at this important crossing location and..pursuing several types of improvements."
The NYCDOT is also looking for artists and community organizations that would be interested in this program. It's a great opportunity for contributors and a great contribution to the neighborhood
