INTRODUCTION

The City of Pompano Beach will commission an artist for a mural to be installed on the back exterior wall located at 60 & 50 NE 1st Ave. The approximate size of the wall is 130’ long by 20’ high. The wall is located in the Innovation and Creative Arts District. The mural will be a significant gateway to downtown.

THEME

Possible themes for this mural include, patterns, simple and flowing, abstract, bright colors, festive, and welcoming. The design should have a strong presence with a concept that is creative. A site visit is not required but is recommended. To view the murals that are currently installed in Artists Alley, which is located two blocks to the north, please go to www.pbpublicart.com. The materials, design and palette must stand up to local weather and be amenable to ongoing maintenance.

Logos are not to be used. The selected artist must apply a UV resistant sealant to the finished product. The medium of spray paint is encouraged as the wall is textured.

PROJECT LOCATION

The mural will be located at 60 & 50 NE 1st Ave., Pompano Beach, FL. 33060, two blocks south of Artists Alley and one block south of the Bailey Contemporary Arts. This location is also where Pompano Beach’s Old Town Untapped is held on the first Friday of every month.

The selected Artist will receive $15,000. The price will include all taxes, insurance and all other fees as well as any equipment the artist may need to complete the mural (i.e. cherry picker, paint, etc.). A UV resistant sealant must be applied.
