We are working with the Rockaway Artists Alliance and Gateway National Recreation Area to mark the National Park Service Centennial with a special exhibit of commissioned works for an exhibit entitled Forbidden Fruit: Street Art in a National Park.

Rockaway Artists Alliance (RAA) and Gateway National Recreation Area, the National Park in the metro NYC area, are producing a special exhibit of commissioned works of Street Art in Fort Tilden. The exhibit will be shown in Rockaway Artists Alliance’s sTudio 7 Gallery and on specially installed Art Walls on the grounds. This project celebrates the centennial of the National Park Service occurring this year.

Street Art, a permitted activity, is a burgeoning genre and we wish to engage young and emerging artists who can tell visual stories to participate in this unique exhibit. Artists will create and show their works on a sanctioned platform in Fort Tilden, Rockaway, NY.

The opportunity is presented for artists to submit proposals on the categories aviators or pollinators for inclusion in this juried exhibition. There will be 8 feet high x 12 feet wide panels prepared for painting by selected artists.


Artists are asked to design a panel that is 8 feet high x 12 feet wide. Panels are outdoors on the RAA grounds and inside the main exhibition space of the sTudio 7 Gallery. Artists need to submit a rendering of a well-designed visual statement based on one of the below themes. Entries will be judged on overall layout and design telling a fascinating story that accurately depicts the subject. Bonus points for NPS centennial reference.

Audience: General, including children and seniors.
