• Designs require minimal maintenance (please describe any maintenance needs of proposed artwork).
• A solar charging station with a lighting component, an existing bus shelter, an enlarged concrete pad will be provided for artists in coordination with their specific proposal.
• Designs that ensure a high level of safety and mitigate risks where possible to avoid vandalism, and be designed in accordance to ADA guidelines
• Original design (not reproduced).
• Proposed work should be structurally sound; proposed work may require review and approval by a registered FL engineer (at the artists expense)—if safety concerns are associated with the proposed work.

• This design competition is open to artists that reside in the following Counties: Hernando, Hillsborough, Pasco, Pinellas, Polk, Manatee and Sarasota.
• It is preferred that the artist have successfully completed other public commissions of a similar scale/budget.
• It is also preferred that the artist have an established track record of producing outdoor artworks that can withstand Florida’s climate.

The project budget is $20,0000 (twenty thousand dollars). This artwork budget will reflect all costs associated with the project.
