Call for Artists: I-4 Ultimate has $400,000 for downtown art projects

-

UPDATE: Applications/Submissions for these art projects are not open at this time. We will share that information once it is public.

The I-4 Ultimate Art Endowment Program will place public art installations adjacent to or near the 21-mile stretch of the I-4 corridor that’s being … well, Ultimated.

The initiative, facilitated by the project contractor, will fund permanent installations along the interstate that can be integrated into highway overpasses, pedestrian bridges, parks, streetscapes, and gateways.

I-4 Mobility Partners will underwrite the Art Endowment Fund to the tune of $1.5 million which will be distributed to municipalities along the corridor as follows:

  • Altamonte Springs – $200,000
  • Eatonville – $225,000
  • Maitland – $200,000
  • Orange County – $225,000
  • Orlando – $400,000
  • Winter Park – $150,000

Each city will be in charge of their own criteria and solicitations for artwork as the project draws to a close. All installations are requested to be in place by February 2021.

Funds are meant to cover all short-term and long-term costs of designing and creating, and maitaining the selected art installations.

THE UNDER-I PROJECT AT CHURCH AND I-4 IS PLANNED TO HOST A PUBLIC SPACE/PARK AREA WHICH WOULD LOOK REALLY GOOD ON AN ART APPLICATION.
