NEW YORK — Artists looking for somewhere to display their work now have a chance to be seen at one of the city's most high-profile places – the World Trade Center site.

The Port Authority of New York and New Jersey and the city Department of Transportation are asking artists to submit designs for a new mural.

The mural will cover a portion of the construction fence on Church Street between Liberty and Vesey streets.

The winning design will be printed on vinyl mesh banners. Contest guidelines ask that the designs reflect "the vibrancy of the thriving downtown commercial and residential neighborhood."

Designs can be submitted until Oct. 1. The mural will be installed in December and will remain until Nov. 2010.
