City Calls to Artists for Public Art Project

February 18, 2023

The City of Cape Coral welcomes local artists to participate in a public art project in South Cape's Entertainment District.

The City’s Community Redevelopment Agency invites artists to submit designs for potential selection in the Concrete Enclosure Public Art Project, aimed at enhancing the aesthetic of the entertainment district along Southeast 47th Terrace by showcasing permanently fixed art on concrete enclosures in Big John Plaza.

Ideal artwork will depict a funky and eclectic use of mixed media materials and colors that exemplify the South Cape’s quirky and relaxed atmosphere. Themes can include nightlife atmosphere, natural environment, abstract and non-representational art. Artwork will be selected based on artistic excellence, innovation, concept, and cultural connection to the community.

Artwork must be submitted online by 12 a.m. MST, Sunday, April 2. Artists must live in Lee County, be at least 18, and adhere to all project guidelines.
