Who will design the National Endowment for the Arts (NEA) Logo? It Could Be You.
Last week, the N.E.A. and Mr. Landesman, its chairman, announced that proposals are being sought 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 creations of artists, the effect of art on audiences and the contribution of artists to the economy. Proposals for the design must be submitted by e-mail to the endowment by 5 p.m. Eastern time on Feb. 26. The author of the proposal selected will receive a government grant of about $25,000. Instructions and requirements for submissions are at arts.gov.
