Yonkers' Open Call for Sculpture Submissions is a call to artists to submit their work to be temporarily displayed at the City's newest public, open space - the Saw Mill River Daylighting Park at New Main Street. Submissions should have an aquatic theme and/or depict Yonkers' history. In collaboration with Mayor Mike Spano, the City's Department of Planning & Development and local artists, our Open Call will connect residents and visitors with original works of art, inspire creativity and continue the revitalization of Yonkers' waterfront district.
Located on a City block at the intersection of Nepperhan Avenue and New Main Street, it's hard to imagine that the Saw Mill River Daylighting Park at New Main Street was once home to a row of shuttered storefronts. As part of Phase III of the award-winning and transformative Daylighting Project, the park is undergoing a multi-phase transformation.
