Since 2012, Light Work’s Urban Video Project has invited media artists or collective to create a new piece for exhibition at our architectural projection site on the Everson Museum of Art. In 2023, for the first time we are opening a Call for Proposals!


The UVP Open Commission is an opportunity for media artists to come to Syracuse and make new work.

Open Commission artists are in-residence for 2-4 consecutive weeks

Commissioned work will be exhibited at our architectural projection site on the facade of the Everson Museum of Art during the program year following the period of residency.

Resources: accommodation in the Light Work AIR apartment during residency; complimentary Light Work membership and 24 hour access to lab facilities; other resources and in-kind services identified on a case-by-case basis

Application link coming soon!
