City Of Port St. Lucie Calls For Outdoor Public Art, Open To All Artists In The US

The City of Port St. Lucie is seeking a landmark, free standing, outdoor sculpture that will be visually appealing from all sides, serve as a focal point for motorists entering and leaving the city, and complement the residential character of the surrounding neighborhoods.  The roundabout is located in a residential area, at NW Bayshore Boulevard and NW Selvitz Road.  The Rickie Report shares the details of this Call to artists and reminds you that you need not be a resident of Port St. Lucie or Florida to apply.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Port St. Lucie is the 8th largest city in Florida and the 3rd largest city in South Florida with over 189,300 residents. It occupies an area of 120 square miles in St. Lucie County on Florida’s east coast, about 50 miles north of West Palm Beach, halfway between Miami and Orlando. Port St. Lucie is proud to be a hometown where people live, learn, work and play, and celebrate all of life’s opportunities and dreams.

 

 

Artists and artist teams submit your proposals for a permanent outdoor public art installation to be exhibited at the roundabout at NW Bayshore Boulevard & NW Selvitz Road.

 

Port St. Lucie is seeking a landmark, free standing, outdoor sculpture that will be visually appealing from all sides, serve as a focal point for motorists entering and leaving the city, and complement the residential character of the surrounding neighborhoods. The roundabout is located in a residential area and the City is seeking proposals that reflect multigenerational families and the City’s motto of being a hometown where people live, learn, work and play.

 

ABOUT PORT ST. LUCIE

Project Description

The roundabout’s interior has a concrete six by six foot base in the center that was designed to accommodate a sculpture.

The commissioned artwork will become part of the City’s permanent public art collection. Proposals should:

• Complement the scale, design and landscaping of the roundabout • Be an original design that requires minimal maintenance
• Be visually appealing from a distance
• Not create a distraction for drivers

While artistic quality is very important, works will be reviewed for durability, safety and appropriateness to the site.

 

Artworks must be structurally sound and able to withstand an outdoor environment in a largely unsupervised area that is not protected from weather or curious viewers.

Port St. Lucie has a subtropical climate that is hot and humid, with intense sun and seasonal heavy rains and hurricane-force winds. Avoiding potential problems such as deteriorating rust and fading should be considered.

 

 

Physical Interpretation & Criteria Goals

There is a 6-foot minimum height preference and 12-foot maximum height preference and it must not exceed more than six feet in width. Other sizes will be considered based on how the proposed art piece fits with the space. Create a sense of community and diversity that reflects the City’s motto, “A City for All People.”

 

 

Budget & Terms

The City’s project budget is not to exceed $200,000. This artwork budget will reflect all costs associated with the project, including but not limited to design and engineering, production, transport, installation, site preparation, and travel expenses.

The City will provide the foundation to support the artwork. However, if unusual foundation needs are proposed by the artist, these costs must be accounted for within their proposed artwork budget.
