|At some point in the past few years, you may have participated in one of the many Artists Wanted projects to promote emerging artists and photographers and award the selected winners a prize. Artists Wanted has now made a major change in name becoming See.Me. Their new name includes a major site upgrade. I just added new work to my former Artists Wanted account, which in now my See.Me profile. It was super fast and easy and I really appreciate this new time-saving site.To celebrate the launch of See.Me, the site is offering over $125,000 in grants and prizes, including their second annual Takeover of Times Square.It’s free to participate. Just start by talking about what you’re most passionate about in the *Your Passions* section. If you upgrade to a pro account you are eligible for more prizes.Every day, See.Me will feature members on their new website to thousands of daily visitors.William Etundi Jr. is the Founder of www.See.Me.
He tells More About “See | Me” : What started as a side project between a few Brooklyn artists has grown into a global phenomenon. Our goal is simple: to support creative people (like you!)
We do this by providing an online space for creatives to show and share their work, by awarding over $1.2 million in awards and grants (with much more to come) and early next year we are opening up our grant making platform so anyone can give and accept grants for the creative work you do.
So far 526,177 people have joined. We’d love for you to be part of the community.www.see.me

iArt-4 Collective is a group of New York-based artists who allow their
subconscious to guide them in the creation of art. Over time, imagery
and ideas have developed and matured as they encourage their art to
evolve. They embrace the melding of aesthetics with ideas, and remain
open to the greater eclecticism of contemporary art.
Michael Krasowitz is a life-long artist whose interest lies in
producing the truest expression of his inner-self. Krasowitz’s
artistic journey has had many stops, evolving from photography, to
printing making and drawing, and ultimately to painting. His current
canvases depict gestural mindscapes of subconscious forms.
Helene Mukhtar’s latest paintings concentrate on different textures,
thicknesses and brush strokes combined with an energetic and pulsating
color palette. She strives to reconnect with the spontaneity and
freedom of her inner child while celebrating the resilience and
strength of the human spirit.
Robin Noble-Zolin is a NYSCA winning photographer whose take on city
life discovers moments of urban still-life amidst the bustle. As a
recognition of her work on the changing face of Times Square, The
Times Square Visitor’s Center features one of her photographs in its
orientation video. Noble-Zolin’s photography is also included in the
reoccurring exhibit, “Here is New York.”
Steve Zolin’s art evolves like a living thing. His swirling human
figures have transformed over time into abstract rhythms. With a
strong interest in curved perspective, he explores the structure of
space itself, which he sees as an infinite whirling machine. He
exhibits regularly in New York and abroad
Yoko Ono has created the *Peace Tower* to honor John Lennon.
On her website, you will also find her downloadable billboards.
The free download of Yoko’s Times Square New York City billboard of the famous phrase *Imagine Peace* in 24 languages is available in several sizes–HERE.
Yoko Ono has also been creating Wish Trees.
When I visited a temple in Tokyo with a Japanese friend, he showed me long strips of paper printed with wishes, that visitors tied to trees or bushes— a common practice at temples in Japan.
Yoko Ono has made her Wish Tree project instructions available for download here.
