The New York City Privately Owned Public Space (POPS) Logo Design Competition was held to solicit a design for a new POPS logo that may be featured on signage at over 550 POPS located across the city. A new POPS logo would be seen by millions of residents, workers, and visitors on any given day and encourage the public to take full advantage of these valuable, but sometimes unknown, public spaces.
Advocates for Privately Owned Public Space, the New York City Department of City Planning, and The Municipal Art Society of New York joined forces to sponsor this design competition, with funding provided in part by Knoll.
