Through a Bloomberg Philanthropies grant, the Council on Culture & Arts (COCA), the Greater Bond Neighborhood Association, and the City of Tallahassee’s Parks, Recreation, and Neighborhood Affairs (PRNA) Department are partnering to facilitate the creative painting of 9 crosswalks and 2 intersections at 3 locations within the Greater Bond neighborhood. Tallahassee distinguishes itself as a national leader in public art by partaking in this Bloomberg Philanthropies Asphalt Art Initiative.
COCA is seeking experienced artists, local to the Tallahassee/Leon County region, to be considered to paint crosswalks at up to 3 locations along Saxon Street in Bond Neighborhood during the spring of 2023. Up to $15,000 is available between the three crosswalk locations for the artist stipends and supplies budgets. If you have any questions, please reach out to COCA’s Public Art Manager at firstname.lastname@example.org.
