Call to Visual Artists: Request for Qualifications - Art in Public Places
The Monroe County Art in Public Places Committee
and Florida Keys Council of the Arts invites visual artists to become pre-qualified for its public art program.
The Monroe County Art in Public Places Ordinance mandates that one percent (1%) of new County building construction costing a minimum of $500,000 and renovations costing a minimum of $100,000 be set aside to fund this program. The AIPP Committee reviews and recommends projects to the Board of County Commissioners, and is responsible for the commission and purchase of art.
The application and information is available the homepage of the Arts Council website, keysarts.com under "Important Links" on DemandStar.
Application requirements include an Artist Statement, current resume, 5 to 10 images of recent artwork, application and a cover page. Please see application for further details on how to complete it.
The application deadline is Tuesday, August 27, 2019 at 3:00 pm.
Applications must be delivered by hand or mail directly to the County's Purchasing Department located in the Gato Building, 1100 Simonton Street, 2nd floor, Key West.
Artists must meet the criteria in the initial application process to become pre-qualified. Pre-qualified artists will then be eligible to receive the Request for Proposals (RFP's) issued by Monroe County for 5 years, as well as for the City of Key West's Public Art Program.
Please share this opportunity with any artists who may be interested in becoming
pre-qualified for our program.
If you have qualified in the past and are unsure of your status, please email
or call the Florida Keys Council of the Arts at 305-295-4369.
