Call for Public Art Mural To All Artists Who Are Residents Of Palm Beach County , FL

This is a Public Service Announcement to share a CALL to Palm Beach County Resident artists for a Mural at the South Façade of the Cultural Council for Palm Beach County (CCPBC).  The Rickie Report shares the details and urges artists to apply by April 19, 2024.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Click HERE for Application

 

PROJECT OPPORTUNITY

The Cultural Council for Palm Beach County (CCPBC) requests qualifications from professional artists or professional artist teams to create an original public art mural for the back wall of its headquarters (south façade) located at 601 Lake Avenue. The theme of the mural should celebrate the concept of community: healing, unity, connections, wellness, and/or belonging. As the mural will face the Council’s new Art & Wellness Space, themes highlighting nature and tranquility are also encouraged. This call will consist of two parts: a call for qualifications followed by a selection of up to five finalists that will develop proposals for the mural.

 

 

PROJECT SITE

 

The Cultural Council serves as the county’s local arts service agency providing funding, advocacy, cultural tourism marketing, artist services, professional development, and a host of other activities and events year-round designed to support Palm Beach County creative professionals and cultural organizations. Its headquarters houses the administrative offices, three gallery spaces, a visitor information center, and the Roe Green Uniquely Palm Beach store. Immediately behind the building is a lot owned by the Cultural Council for arts programs, concerts, and other gatherings. Through this initiative, the space will be renamed the Arts & Wellness Space, and the mural will be a significant part of this rebranding and reimagining of the space.

 

 

In 2017, through the Canvas public art festival, a mural was installed on the back wall. The mural has weathered significantly and must be replaced. The Council’s back wall is approximately 54’W x 36’H and includes a roll-up type garage door that was previously included in the mural. CCPBC requests that the garage door is not included in the new mural design of approximately 1,000 sq. ft. The existing mural will be removed, and the wall will be repaired and primed before the start of the new mural project.

 

 

PROJECT GOALS

 

The artwork is of high artistic quality.
The design is expressive and echoes the theme of the project.
The completed mural serves as a visual identifier for Lake Worth Beach, the Cultural Council, and the theme of community and/or wellness.
The proposed work is appropriate for the site in terms of scale, design, and materials.

 

 

BUDGET

 

The commissioning budget is $40,000 and is all-inclusive including: design, artist fee, materials, installation, and insurance. Proposals that exceed the commission budget will be considered non-responsive and non-qualified. Artist teams must split the allotted budget if awarded. The Cultural Council will work with the selected artist or artist team on securing rental equipment (scaffolding and/or scissor-lifts). Additional budget may be allocated for these expenses.

 

 

ELIGIBILITY

 

Open to professional visual artists or artist-led teams age 18 and over who reside in Palm Beach County, Florida. Artists or artist teams (max two artists per team) must demonstrate their professional capacity to oversee the design and installation of a large-scale public mural.

 

 

QUALIFICATION APPLICATION

 

All interested artists or artists teams must submit their qualifications by uploading their application to the Call to Artists on Café. There are no exceptions.
Applications must contain all the following materials:

1. Professional Resumé: Resumés or CVs (limited to 2 pages) must be uploaded for each artist or artist team (artist teams should provide a separate Resumé/CV for each member). Teams must provide information for each team member, and one artist must be identified as the lead contact for the team. Any artist team selected through this call must retain the same composition of individual team members until the completion of the commission.

2. Statement of Interest: (max. 500 words) Statements should address the artist or artist team’s interest in developing a public art proposal for this specific commission and provide context to the conceptual and aesthetic approach, highlighting prior artworks, projects, or commissions of a similar scale.

SELECTION PROCESS

 

Artist or artist teams will be selected through the following process:

1. Qualification Review. CCPBC staff will preview submissions for completeness and compliance with qualification requirements. Staff may reject incomplete applications or non-qualified or non-responsive submissions.

2. Selection. A selection panel consisting of visual art professionals, board and staff representatives from the Cultural Council, and a representative from the City of Lake Worth Beach will review artists’ qualifications. No more than five (5) and no less than three (3) artists or artist teams will be selected and notified as finalists for the call.

3. Concept Creation. The finalists will create a concept for the completed mural responding to the thematic requirements. The finalists will be paid a stipend of $500 each to develop their concept proposal. Finalists will also be asked to submit a full budget and timeline for the proposed project. Concepts will be on display for two weeks at the Council’s headquarters so that the public has a chance to view and provide general feedback. The selection committee will then reconvene and select the final artist or artist team (and the mural concept). The selected artist or artist team will have approximately three months to complete the project.

 

CRITERIA:

 

Selection of the final concept proposal will be based on the project goals and the following criteria:

  1. Artistic quality: Artwork should incorporate a high level of craftsmanship and artistic excellence.
  2. Diversity: Artwork is diverse in terms of media, cultural or historical significance, innovation, and creativity.
  3. Appropriateness to site: Artwork should be innovative, engaging, and compatible with the location in terms of scale, material, and form. Artwork should be conceptually appealing to a wide audience of varied ages, backgrounds, and ethnicities. Artwork should exhibit originality of concept and demonstrate a strong conceptual alignment with the goals of the project.

4. Artist qualifications: The feasibility of the proposed artwork is evaluated relative to the artist’s ability to complete the work proposed. Factors to be considered include the artists or artist teams experience, past projects budget, and timeline.

5. Artwork maintenance: Artwork must be designed and constructed for durability in the South Florida climate. Consideration will be given to proposals that consider sustainable and efficient methods in the ongoing maintenance of the artwork, including UV protection.

 

OVERVIEW OF COMMISSIONED ARTIST OR ARTIST TEAM RESPONSIBILITIES

 

Develop and refine artistic concepts and designs with staff and key stake – holders working on the project. Develop final drawings, presentation materials, budget breakdown, and other visual and written items.

WATERMEDIA WORKSHOP

Sue Archer    NWS AWS TWSA  FWS

3 days   January 16, 17, 18, 2024

 

Watercolors and Acrylics

     Level: Adv. Beginners thru Advanced

(2 years of painting experience needed)

                                                                                                                 

 

              

Your days will be filled with daily demos, lectures, color or design projects and on-going critiques.  A personal, one on one consultation time may be available.

 

 

This is a course designed to inspire your creativity by learning to “see” and experience some different design and composition concepts; and understand the power of planning even if you are an “intuitive painter”. Designed to inspire adv. beginners and provide a review and challenge for the advanced student.

 

Member Registration                        Non-Member Registration

 

 

 

Sue Archer tells The Rickie Report, “My goal as an instructor is to present you with information about DESIGN AND COMPOSITION to add to your core of knowledge regardless of your medium. I believe in the power of planning and understanding the basics. The objective here is not to change you, but to take you to another level. Then it is up to you to internalize this knowledge and apply it to the medium, genre, style and subject matter that suits you.

 

 

If you like to paint intuitively, the more you know the better your choices will be during your process. In this workshop you’ll experience how Sue creates and designs her imagery and achieves a “strong” quality of light. You will be introduced to many topics and concepts dealing with design and composition.  Your goal should be to decide how these ideas could apply to your painting, your subject matter, your intent and style. Elements and principles of design need to be understood; They are not rules, only guidelines. You, as the artist, need to learn how to use them successfully in your work! Learning about design takes a lifetime of study.

 

 

Finished paintings are not our objective;

The planning and designing of your paintings are.

    

 

 

DESIGN TOPICS AND CONCEPTS TO BE DISCUSSED:  

     

Planning a painting                                      Merger (linkage, bridge, tie into….)

Importance of values and shapes           Editing

Viewpoint                                                        Cropping

“What do I do with my background”     Intent

 Unity                                                                  Taking and using photos for reference

 

 

 

For advanced painters: to assist me in discussing your work, you should bring the reference material you work from (your own personal photos, digital files and/or sketches) and photos or digital files of some your paintings or works in progress. You will have time to work on your own compositions.

 

 

I want every student to bring lots of your own personal resource material for any subject that interests you and in any form you desire!!!  (This reference material should be things you drew or photos you took yourself). Have your photos  (that you are serious about painting)  printed out at approximately 8×10; this makes it much easier for information gathering.

 

We will be discussing light, so make sure some of your reference has direct light on your subject. The best light is from the side, not frontal lighting. Shut off your flash! This will enable you to have available the imagery and genre you like for solving the daily projects.

 

You will be doing your own drawings and using your own personal reference during class.
