Key West’s Art in Public Places Board wants to borrow six sculptures to enhance the new pedestrian park in the 1400 block of Duval Street.
Chosen works will be on display for 18 months, and artists will receive a $1,500 honorarium for the use of their work. Artwork may also be for sale while on display.
The application deadline is 5 p.m. on June 15. Applications are available at keysarts.com.
The park includes six concrete pads, each measuring 30” square to support local sculpture for the public to enjoy and celebrate the historic and creative community of Key West.
Artists must propose and submit completed work that will complement and enhance the public space.
The AIPP Board will provide transportation and installation assistance to each artist as needed.
Proposed sculptures should represent the unique aesthetic and cultural identity of Key West’s historic district and need to be in scale with the surroundings. The main considerations are creativity, site appropriateness and durability. Images and dimensions of finished proposed work must be submitted online with the application. Sculptures must not have any
sharp edges or potential safety hazards.
