Special Gift with Donation
From the beginning, Urban Omnibus has been a showcase of good ideas for the future of cities, conceived in the public interest and tried and tested in the five boroughs of New York. In April 2011, we decided to spotlight some of the ideas that have appeared on Urban Omnibus — 50 Ideas for the New City — and broadcast them online, in person and on the walls and surfaces of New York. A series of six “Idea Posters” appeared on fences, scaffolds and storefronts from Jamaica, Queens to the Upper West Side of Manhattan, and many places in between.
And now we are offering them to you, as a thank you for donating to Urban Omnibus. With a donation of $25, you will receive one poster of your choosing. With a donation of $60, you may choose any three of the six posters. Donate $100 or more and you will receive a complete set of Omnibus Idea Posters.
The development and pilot phase of Urban Omnibus have been made possible by the Rockefeller Foundation’s New York City Cultural Innovation Fund. Urban Omnibus is also supported by public funds from the New York City Department of Cultural Affairs in partnership with the City Council; and the National Endowment for the Arts.
Architectural League programs are supported, in part, by public funds from the New York City Department of Cultural Affairs in partnership with the City Council; the New York State Council on the Arts with the support of Governor Andrew Cuomo and the New York State Legislature; and the National Endowment for the Arts. League programs are also supported by contributions from individuals, foundations, corporations, and our members.
The City of Systems video series was made possible by IBM as part of its commitment to use technology and information to help build more sustainable and intelligent cities.
