Opportunity for a USA, Canada, or International individual artists or team of artists, architects, landscape architects, and designers to participate in a competition to create a New York City memorial for the victims of Hurricane Maria. Funding is intended for the design, development, and implementation of a memorial that will be located in Lower Manhattan.

In the wake of tragedy and devastation and marking the first anniversary of Hurricane Maria, which struck Puerto Rico on September 20, 2017, Governor Cuomo established a commission to create a memorial honoring the victims of Hurricane Maria and to stand as an international symbol of the resilience of the Puerto Rican community.
The artist and/or architect must provide a summary statement of their artistic intent, addressing the following:
