$200,000 available forOrange County I-4 Ultimate Project Public Art
The Orange County Public Art Review Board seeks an artist or artist team(s) to developartworkfor a dedicated site located to the south of I-4 at the Grand National Drive overpass to provide an artistically rich installation that will capture the character and culture of our community, and visually enhance the public space. For a region that sees more than 70 million visitors a year, the art will be a welcome addition and an opportunity to showcase Central Florida’s artistic side.
Deadline: Wednesday, Nov. 6, 2019.Applications, resumes, images and other materials must be submitted by midnight MST through the CaFÉ online service.
Orange County, Florida is a rapidly growing metropolitan area of more than 1.3 million residents that contains the city of Orlando and a dozen other municipalities. It is a destination for travelers around the world, with Visit Orlando reporting 75 million annual visitors in 2018, and Orlando International Airport the 10th-busiest airport in the nation with 47 million passengers annually. It is home to the Orange County Convention Center, the second-largest convention center in the United States. The community at large has grown far beyond its reputation as a center for the citrus industry and theme parks to a world-recognized hub of innovation, technology and diversity. Orange County is one of six jurisdictions commissioning art along the 21-mile stretch of the I-4 Ultimate project with part of the $1.5 million Project Art Endowment.
The site being considered falls within the boundaries of both the City of Orlando and the International Drive overlay plan. It is located northeast of I-4 at the Kirkman Road exit ramp, across Grand National Drive from the western terminus of Oak Ridge Road. (See the map of the Site Plan.)
The I-4 Ultimate Project Art Endowment Committee, consisting of representatives of I-4 Mobility Partners, FDOT and the construction joint venture of Skanska Granite Lane (SGL Constructors), is funding the public art installation that will be integrated into the project landscape to enhance the interstate corridor along I-4, creating a more scenic and cultural experience for motorists and pedestrians. In addition to the Orange County project, five other municipalities have received funds from the committee: the City of Orlando, the Town of Eatonville, Winter Park, Maitland and Altamonte Springs.
$200,000 has been approved for artwork, as part of a grant from the I-4 Ultimate Art Endowment Committee. The budget shall be inclusive of all related expenses pertaining to the installation, including permitting, infrastructure, lighting and fabrication of the art installation.
Artwork Selection Criteria
The Public Artist SelectionPanel seekscreative solutions for the location mentioned above.The artwork should be permanent and durable with little maintenance needed in the location at whichitwill be sited. Artists will be evaluated on artistic excellence, as evidenced by submitted materials, professionalexperience and compatibility.

Artworks must be structurally sound and able to withstand an outdoor environment in a largely unsupervised area that is not protected from weather or curious viewers.

Avoiding potential problems such as deteriorating rust and fading should be considered.
This opportunity is open to professional artists working in three-dimensional media.
Interested artists are invited to visit the site at any time. It lies beside a public road. Finalists will be invited to visit the site at a designated date and time (to be announced), and hosted by officials who should be able to answer any questions.
A selection panel consisting of the project manager, arts professionals and staff will review artist qualifications and images of past work. Three artists will be selected to provide proposals and will bepaid a stipend of $2,000 each for their site-specific proposal. Final artist(s) selection will take place after review of the proposals.
