2018 Public Art Opportunity 
Request for Proposals
Deadline Extension to 6/8/18

The Chinatown District Management Association (Chinatown BID) welcomes artists from the community to submit proposals for an upcoming public art project on Doyers St. This project seeks to commemorate the life and accomplishments of Mabel Lee, a suffragette and the first female Asian-American graduate of Columbia University, after whom the Doyers Street Post Office will soon be named after. The proposal should include a public art element that will be placed directly on the street using pre-approved materials. The design should be colorful and creative, as well as directly reflective of Chinatown's character and pay homage to Mabel Lee.
Extended Submission Deadline: Friday, June 8, 2018, 5pm EST

2nd Joint CDMA/CPLDC Benefit & Awards Gala

Thursday, June 28, 2018, 7pm
Jing Fong Restaurant
20 Elizabeth Street, Manhattan
At our joint gala, we will be saluting those who have made Chinatown and our city a better place to live, work, and visit. The Chinatown District Management Association (CDMA) and Chinatown Partnership Local Development Corporation (CPLDC) are delighted to honor and recognize the following individuals and organizations for their outstanding contributions and unwavering commitment to our community:
  • Apex for Youth  
  • Families with Children from China
  • Ms. Norma Chu
  • Mr. Tony Chuy
  • Mr. Yui Shing Lee
During these challenging economic times, it is even now more crucial to have your support in order to continue to provide essential services and programs to Chinatown. Funding for our general operating budget is limited, and your generous donation will help to sustain our efforts.

We are proud of our work and accomplishments on behalf of our community. Much of the successes of the CDMA and CPLDC would not be possible without our dedicated staff, volunteers, community partners, individual and corporate supporters. Your continued support through the purchase of a gala ticket, table or journal ad is greatly appreciated.  
Thank you, and we look forward to seeing you on June 28th!
