Qualities of Artwork
The artwork should be durable and require minimal ongoing maintenance. South Florida has a sub-tropical climate and is hot and humid with an intense sun and seasonal heavy rain. Problems with rust and fading should be avoided. The sculpture should be designed and constructed so that they can be securely anchored to a concrete pad which will be provided, if necessary.

Selected artists will receive a total honorarium of $2,500 per selected artwork that is intended to cover all expenses, including travel and property insurance should the artist choose to have the artwork covered for property damage or loss while on loan to the City. This honorarium will be paid in two installments: $1250 after the work is successfully installed and $1250 after the work has been successfully removed from the site by the end of the period. Selected artists will coordinate installation and de-installation with the City’s Public Art Administrators. To participate, artists or their installers must carry General Liability insurance naming the City as an additional insured, proof of Automobile insurance, and Workers’ Compensation insurance or a Workers’ Compensation Exemption as required by Florida Statute to cover the installation and the de-installation of their work. The City will produce publicity materials and will promote the exhibition. Sale of exhibited artwork will be encouraged and a 25% commission on works sold during the exhibition will remain with the City.
