Is memory a vital vehicle of expression for you?  Do you inadvertently honor or flee from something in your past through your work? Verum Ultimum Gallery invites artists to divulge their talent within this expressive theme and haunt our haunt with your vision.

Days remaining to deadline: 65

As part of Coral Springs’ dedication to the arts, the Public Art Committee is looking to commission an artist/artist team to create an interactive sculpture for the NW 31st Court ArtWalk. This sculpture should be significant in size and able to hold its own. It must have interactive aspects that involve the spectator. An interactive sculpture is a sculpture that allows the observer to “walk” in, on and around them or have the spectator become part of the artwork itself. Kinetic sculptures are not welcome.

This Request for Proposals is emphasizing the City of Coral Springs’ desire to commission and purchase an artwork that represents its young, family-oriented community and depicts the city’s mission as the ‘premier city to live, work and raise a family’. The artwork should be family oriented, iconic and create photo opportunities for visitors.

The artwork should be durable and require minimal ongoing maintenance. South Florida has a sub-tropical climate and is hot and humid with an intense sun and seasonal heavy rains. Problems with rust and fading should be avoided. Resistance to high-speed winds is required. The artwork must be self-supporting on an open landscape or hardscape and be large in scale.

Visits include a permit for limited access along the Denali Park Road and time alone at a historic ranger patrol cabin.

Each participant volunteers to lead a public outreach activity with visitors and to donate a finished work to the program collection. Artists are challenged to create works for visitors that convey a fresh and innovative perspective of Denali drawn from direct experience. With the welcome addition of several year-round gallery spaces beyond park boundaries, more of these donated works enjoy a larger life in the public eye.
