It’s July 1. Started more than seven hours ago. And you know what that means.

One whole month to paint, photograph and sculpt your interpretations of the bridge — new design or current — for the 2014 Bridge Art Show, a collaboration with ArtsWestchester, Rockland Center for the Arts, Rivertown Artists Workshop and Nyack Art Collective.

The deadline’s been extended to July 31 — and project officials are already receiving submissions.

“This is a nice way to join the Westchester and Rockland arts communities,” RoCA Executive Director Julianne Ramos agreed. “Artists appreciate the opportunity to say they were in a show, and have their work recognized.”

The project’s Visual Quality Panel — including RoCA Board of Directors President Robert L. Fellows — will select a Best of Show and two runners-up for the work, shown in Tarrytown and Nyack.

ArtsWestchester CEO Janet Langsam is encouraging amateurs and those more advanced to take part. “A bridge takes you places and brings people together, and it’s important art is involved,” she emphasized.

I’d like to know what you think.
