The Public Art Department at the City of Boynton Beach seeks to commission an artist/artist team to create two murals as a part of the Heart of Boynton Unity Project.

The project is an innovative art collaboration with the community, the city’s local government, and artists to bring awareness to the 100 year period since the passage of ordinance 37, which mandated residential racial segregation in Boynton Beach.  Through the creative arts and community dialogue, the project highlights the Heart of Boynton’s often overlooked history.

The Unity Project is facilitated through physical enhancements of public art, murals and historic markers that honor individuals, places and events from the passage of the ordinance in 1924 through the present.  This project acknowledges our shared collective past and aims to pave a brighter future.

A series of smaller events will lead up to a celebratory festival on February 24, 2024.  The events will engage residents in the community to express their voices through poetry, songs, performances and the visual arts.

Artists in Palm Beach County, Florida are encouraged to apply.

The selected artist/art team will receive a $10,000 honorarium ($5,000 per mural).  This project is funded, in part, by a grant from the Mellon Foundation, South Arts in partnership with the National Endowment for the Arts and the Florida Division of Arts & Culture.
