Each year, Beam Center seeks design proposals for ambitious public artworks that will be brought to life through collaborations between youth and creative big thinkers.

Projects are realized by a community of more than 100 young people at each of our project sites: in New Hampshire (NH), on Governors Island (GI), and in a local NYC community.
