Call to Artists: 9-11 Memorial 

BUDGET:         $20,000.00

DEADLINE:      April 5, 2018

The City of Pompano Beach’s Fire Department has acquired a piece of steel from the World Trade Center for use in a memorial for the 343 first responders that died saving lives on September 11, 2001. The City will commission an artist to integrate the piece of steel into an artistic memorial.

The artifact itself must be displayed as part of a greater memorial and not as a trophy item. Visitors must be able to touch the exposed steel and connect with the tragic loss of that terrible day. The numbers “343”, representing the 343 first responding firefighters that died that day saving the lives of others, must be placed somewhere on the memorial. Listing the names of the first responders and their battalion are highly encouraged but are not required. If the artifact is cut, drilled or altered in a way that removes any portion of the artifact, the shavings or detached portion(s) must be returned to the 9-11 Foundation or proof of their respectful and permanent disposal must be provided.

The location for the memorial is Founders Park located at 215 NE 4th Avenue. Pompano Beach, Florida. The memorial will be placed next to the Historic Fire House.
