Call to Artists from City of St. Augustine

The public art installation should be a signature piece for the St. Augustine community and should reflect some aspect of the City’s culture, unique history, or natural environment. The artwork should appeal to a broad audience and should be site-responsive, and properly scaled to the surroundings. The materials used must be able to withstand extreme weather and heavy traffic and must be structurally sound and require low upkeep and minimal maintenance costs. The site is located within a Florida Department of Transportation roadway and the artwork will have to meet all FDOT requirements and have signed and sealed engineering plans.
