In an effort to encourage tourism and improve public art, Wilton Manors has issued a call to artists to create a Photo Spot at Jaycee Park.
“The Photo Spot Program will assist in the creation of public artwork that inspires creativity, promotes city pride, engages local artists, attracts and entertains visitors and residents, provides social media opportunities (Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter) and reflects the City’s diversity,” reads the call to artists release. The deadline is Dec. 10.
The winning artist will receive $500 and public recognition. They will also be responsible for determining which materials to use, solving design issues, making sure the design is in line with building codes and coordinating the installation and fabrication of the design.
Choosing the winning artist will be a selection committee comprised of city staff members and residents from the volunteer boards and Central Area Neighborhood Association.
Visibility, maintenance requirements, integration with Jaycee Park, ease of accessibility by the public and possible traffic impacts will all be considered in how the selection committee chooses.
