GULFPORT -- The City of Gulfport Public Arts Advisory Committee is seeking proposals from artists for a permanent public art display at the Gulfport Recreation Center, 5730 Shore Blvd. S.
The theme is children and teens at play. The Committee is seeking proposals for the placement of three to five safe and durable sculptures, in primary colors that may be located inside the Recreation Center and outside in the park area south of the Recreation Center.
Each artist shall provide six sets of their submittal. The submittal shall consist of a one-page typewritten description of the proposed sculptures and a drawing or series of up to four drawings (no larger than 81/2-by-11 inches in size).
The written description must specify the proposed size and media. The sculpture must be able to withstand environmental elements including but not limited to rain, salt spray from Boca Ciega Bay and the heat of the summer sun.
The sculpture also should be able to withstand a hit by a basketball or a ping-pong ball. The artist may wish to describe how the sculptures will be affixed and where the artist wishes to locate the artwork in the facility.
All proposals are due no later than 4:30 p.m. Jan. 22. Proposals shall be mailed or dropped off to Paula Cohen, 2401 53rd St., Gulfport, FL 33707. To visit the site, call Cohen at 893-1066 to set up an appointment.
