Artists sought for Times Square public projects, deadline June 30

With support from Times Square Arts, The Work Office (TWO) is hiring artists
to create and present public projects in Times Square during the week of
October 2-8, 2011. TWO is accepting applications through June 30th.

The Work Office (TWO) is a multidisciplinary art project disguised as an
employment agency. Informed by the Works Progress Administration (WPA) of
the Great Depression in the 1930s, TWO is a gesture to "make work" for
visual and performing artists, writers, and others by giving them simple,
idea-based assignments that explore, document, and improve daily life in New
York City. From a temporary, publicly accessible office in Times Square,
TWO's administrators will hire employees, exhibit work, and distribute
Depression-era wages at a Payday Party.

stopped in the need for preservation, but gets into a self-sufficient
