Pompano Beach, FL, Unknown
The City of Pompano Beach Public Art Program is seeking a professional artist or artist team to hold community engagement activities that will serve as inspiration in designing four asphalt street art murals and eight storm drain murals.
BUDGET: $34,000 (community engagement and volunteer supervision; some on-site work in Florida required)
ELIGIBILITY: Professional artists over 18 living in the United States
DEADLINE: September 24, 2020
The selected artist(s) should have experience with community engagement public art projects. The engagement activities and final artworks are to be based on aspects that will improve the quality of life for the community, express connectivity, environmental issues and create an artwork that is representative of what those living in the community would like to see.
The project creates an opportunity to educate, energize, and engage our entire community while celebrating our City’s unique characteristics through public art. Using the guidelines of the Bloomberg Foundation’s recent publication, “Asphalt Art Guide,” this project will involve community volunteers, local artists and various city departments in the production of public art in pedestrian space creating street art on asphalt and storm drains.
The Community Engagement Activities can be in person, online, or in a combination of both. The project will engage residents and members of the Pompano Beach community of all ages and artistic levels. By engaging the community to work as a team to create works of art, this project will encourage interaction and cooperation that can be transposed to other areas of community living, including celebration of Pompano’s diverse history and the importance of environmental stewardship.
