The City of Camden, partnering with Cooper’s Ferry Partnership and Rutgers-Camden Center for the Arts, was awarded a Bloomberg Philanthropies Public Art Challenge grant.  A New View Camden invites artists to use materials, spaces and time in a transformative way to reinforce the perception of the city as a place of creative possibility, on sites that were previously associated with illegal dumping. A New View is accepting proposals for the design, fabrication, and installation of artwork to be created by artists with a track record that demonstrates their ability to work at a scale commensurate with outdoor sites. The work placed on these sites will be visible to pedestrians, cyclists, automobile drivers, and public transit users. The choice of working methods (fabrication) may potentially engage residents, including using Camden and area facilities for fabrication. The project and the description of the sites is available online at
