CALLS TO ARTISTS
2017 SHINE Mural Festival - Artist: Jujmo

Deadline: September 16

Artists are invited to submit qualifications for exterior art (minimum of 25 years lifespan) for the City of St. Petersburg Sanitation Department Headquarters, a new construction project (the “site”). The site of the new construction is located on 28th Street North at 20th Avenue North where two existing buildings will remain active through construction but will be demolished following construction of the new building. Completion is expected Spring/Summer 2023.

The Project Committee seeks artists to design, build and install artwork that could reflect the history of the department. The site for artwork is set back from 28th Street with the artwork located towards the front of the to-be-built building. This will create an opportunity for the artwork and the building to visually complement each other.

Low maintenance installations are encouraged. Any installations must withstand the Florida humidity, salt air, hurricane force winds, possible inundation by salt water, strong UV rays, and potential unsupervised contact with children and adults. The City of St. Petersburg will install up to a 100-square-foot concrete pad if required. Proposals may require electric wiring. Conduit, if required, would be funded by the construction budget. All lighting fixtures, themselves, would be funded through the artist budget. Self-contained, solar-powered proposals would be preferred.
