Miami Beach Issues Requests for Design Proposals

(Miami Beach, FL) Feb 8, 2019 -

From original Art Deco architecture to an extensive collection of public art, the City of Miami Beach’s cultural identity is embedded in major elements of municipal life. Inviting artists and design professionals to apply their own artistic approach to otherwise ordinary public infrastructure and areas, the City is asking interested individuals to design temporary site-specific installations for the 41 Street corridor and North Beach Water Tanks.

“The winning design will be an innovative concept; one that fully transforms public spaces and structures into cultural, eye-catching icons,” shared Mayor Dan Gelber. “Serving vital functions in the community, water storage and pedestrian-friendly streets will now provide an additional benefit for residents and visitors through their artistic enhancements.”

Creative concepts for the 41 Street corridor should reimagine a busy corridor as an engaging destination for pedestrians to photograph and interact, while designs for the water tank should build awareness for water conservation.

“Activating art in these public spaces will undoubtedly create a memorable experience for individuals as they engage with these pieces,” added Commissioner Ricky Arriola.

Proposed designs should be contemporary in nature. Interested applicants should be prepared to include images of previously completed work. Applications must be submitted no later than February 28, 2019 at 11:59 p.m. Apply today by clicking here.
