Florida

Budget:

Medium:

create an art piece that fosters a sense of place


Location:

Deadline:

06.07.2021


more information »

The Village plans to transform Franjo Road, downtown’s future Main Street, into a pedestrian-friendly street to significantly improve the area’s physical conditions through infrastructure improvements. The project is exemplary of a pedestrian-oriented development, known to bring foot traffic to the area, which is vital to the survival of small, local businesses. New lateral roads will create a better street grid to enhance connectivity within the area and provide street frontage to a larger number of businesses, thereby increasing their visibility and access. With this project, Palmetto Bay expects to experience significant growth in its downtown corridor as the Village seeks to create an environment that will attract investment to its downtown area and serve as a catalyst for the redevelopment of what is now a cluster of underutilized and neglected public streets and private properties. The project objective is to create an art piece that fosters a sense of place and enhances the traffic circle. The piece should be appropriate for a public space and should be a piece which resembles the beauty of Palmetto Bay and provides a focal point at our Main Street.

The Institute of Black Culture will offer educational, cultural and community building programs and initiatives sponsored by Black Affairs, Multicultural and Diversity Affairs and various University of Florida student organizations and departments.

The sites for art are the 1st and 2nd story curved “Beacon” walls and curved window wall. All appropriate media will be considered. Both abstract and representational art will be equally considered. However, if representational, art should engage occupants through wholistic views with uplifting references to Black culture and history, and not solely the struggle narrative.
