TD has formed a partnership with The Shed, the new arts center at Hudson Yards, as lead sponsor of the “Open Call” artist commissioning program. Along with TD Securities and TD Bank Group, TD Bank is investing $1.5 million to support a large-scale initiative dedicated to developing and presenting new works from locally-based artists who haven’t received major institutional support.
As the lead sponsor of The Shed’s “Open Call,” TD will underwrite programs focused on providing access, visibility and resources for New York-based emerging artists to develop and present original new work in The Shed’s galleries, theater and open-air plaza. Artists also receive a commissioning fee of $7,000 to $15,000 to support their work through this initiative.
TD’s sponsorship will also fund a program that provides priority tickets to individuals who typically can’t afford them, including underserved families, residents of NYCHA public housing and students at Title 1 schools.
