Palm Beach County’s Art in Public Places program seeks to commission an artist or artist team (Artist) to design, construct and install art to enhance, and make more visible to the public, Palm Tran’s new headquarters building. Designs shall be inspired by concepts of movement, mobility & community transportation.
Budget: $193,500. Selected Finalists will receive a $2,000 fee to prepare a concept proposal.
Eligibility: Open to all professional artists who are United States residents with experience creating (designing, fabricating and installing) integrated public art environments. The commissioned Artist must hire Florida-licensed design professionals to develop and provide permit ready plans.
In 2015 and 2016, the City of Delray Beach facilitated meetings of a Congress Avenue Task Force to set a vision for the future of the Congress Avenue corridor. A fundamental conclusion of the Task Force was for Congress Avenue to assume its own unique identity, which would include attention to aesthetics and amenities along the roadway frontage that would serve to activate the corridor and deliver a distinct sense of place. Areas dedicated to public art were identified as one such approach to transform this vision into reality.
