Opportunities for Public Art
In collaboration with Miami-Dade Fire Rescue Department, Miami-Dade Art in Public Places has identified three opportunities for the integration of public art. The decision to implement opportunities will be based upon the artistsâ€™ site specific project proposals and the recommendations of the Miami-Dade Art in Public Places Professional Advisory Committee. The estimated project budgets for these opportunities are intended to suggest preliminary financial parameters for conceptualizing project proposals and are intended to be inclusive of all costs to design, fabricate, install and implement art projects.
Artists may express interest in one or more opportunities and are required to submit a preliminary statement detailing their initial approach to the public art components for which they intend to address.
