Request for Qualifications: Cultural Council South Façade Mural

DEADLINE TO APPLY HAS PASSED

PROJECT OPPORTUNITY

The Cultural Council for Palm Beach County (CCPBC) requests qualifications from professional artists or professional artist teams to create an original public art mural for the back wall of its headquarters (south façade) located at 601 Lake Avenue. The theme of the mural should celebrate the concept of community: healing, unity, connections, wellness, and/or belonging. As the mural will face the Council’s new Art & Wellness Space, themes highlighting nature and tranquility are also encouraged. This call will consist of two parts: a call for qualifications followed by a selection of up to five finalists that will develop proposals for the mural.

 

PROJECT SITE

The Cultural Council serves as the county’s local arts service agency providing funding, advocacy, cultural tourism marketing, artist services, professional development, and a host of other activities and events year-round designed to support Palm Beach County creative professionals and cultural organizations. Its headquarters houses the administrative offices, three gallery spaces, a visitor information center, and the Roe Green Uniquely Palm Beach store. Immediately behind the building is a lot owned by the Cultural Council for arts programs, concerts, and other gatherings. Through this initiative, the space will be renamed the Arts & Wellness Space, and the mural will be a significant part of this rebranding and reimagining of the space.

In 2017, through the Canvas public art festival, a mural was installed on the back wall. The mural has weathered significantly and must be replaced. The Council’s back wall is approximately 54’W x 36’H and includes a roll-up type garage door that was previously included in the mural. CCPBC requests that the garage door is not included in the new mural design of approximately 1,000 sq. ft. The existing mural will be removed, and the wall will be repaired and primed before the start of the new mural project.

 

PROJECT GOALS

 

BUDGET

The commissioning budget is $40,000 and is all-inclusive including: design, artist fee, materials, installation, and insurance. Proposals that exceed the commission budget will be considered non-responsive and non-qualified. Artist teams must split the allotted budget if awarded.

MISSION

The mission of the Cultural Council for Palm Beach County is to nurture, promote, and support a healthy, diverse, and inclusive cultural sector. We serve as cultural architects, championing and growing cultural organizations and creative professionals so that arts and culture are a part of everyday life, for everyone.

The Cultural Council’s headquarters (601 Lake Ave., Lake Worth Beach) features three galleries. The spaces are used for visual arts exhibitions as well as performances (music, dance, etc.) throughout the year. The solo gallery is approximately 390 square feet and includes moveable wall in the space. The Council also offers other programs and services designed to support creative professionals in Palm Beach County and has a dedicated Artist Resource Team (ART) to support the sector.

 

VISION

We envision Palm Beach County as a thriving, vibrant, financially stable, and inclusive arts and cultural community that contributes to an exceptional quality of life.

 

STATEMENT OF CULTURAL EQUITY

We believe that everyone has cultural traditions that are inherently valuable. We seek to honor and value creative expression of all people through the work of the Cultural Council for Palm Beach County. Creating an art-filled community means seeing, celebrating, and serving all. Cultural equity is essential to a sustainable arts and cultural sector and a vibrant and thriving community.

 

Exhibitions

Exhibitions allow visual artists to display and sell their work in a professionally curated and well-promoted show. The Council is available to assist in the selection of the artwork to be displayed, install/de-install the show, handle logistics and sales, and answer all questions along the way. The Council retains 25% of all art sales. These funds are used to support the artist services staff and maintain the building.

The Council uses a non-paid, competitive selection process for this gallery in an effort to provide opportunities for artists of any means.

Interested artists will submit an application and sample work to be considered by a vetting committee of visual arts professionals. The 2024-2025 schedule will include six solo shows that run for six weeks each.
