The City of Pompano Beach will commission a mosaic artist for the design and installation of a mosaic mural that will be located in Artists Alley on an exterior wall located at 135 NE 1st Ave. The mosaic mural should be abstract in nature. The Public Art Committee plans on installing two murals in 2019 in Artists Alley continuing to beautify the alleyway bringing the total amount of murals in this area to six.


The Public Art Committee is looking for mosaic mural designs that are abstract and creative. The design should have a strong presence. The mosaic mural must have a frame. The materials and design must stand up to local weather and be amenable to ongoing maintenance. Logos are not to be used.


The mural will be located in Artists Alley on an exterior wall located at 135 NE 1st Ave., Pompano Beach, Florida. This City is continuing to its efforts to transform this alley into a mural alley entitled Artist Alley. The mosaic mural location is approximately 41” x 10’. The mosaic mural must include a frame.

To see the wall, visit:


The Public Art Program Manager will review and inspect the design via photographs or in person as the artwork is being fabricated. The Program Manager will also inspect the installation of the mosaic mural in person during installation. During these reviews, the Program Manager will make suggestions on the design and application of the mural that the artist will then follow.


The selected Artist will receive $4,000. The price will include all taxes, insurance and all other fees as well as any materials and equipment the artist may need to complete the mural.
