Memorial to the Enslaved Request for Designs
Posted: Jun 08, 2021
Goodwood Museum & Gardens Memorial to the Enslaved is a sacred and contemplative place that brings together descendants, the community, and partners to educate, remember, and honor cultures and traditions to promote healing in the present and serve as inspiration for equality and social justice in the future.
Goodwood is engaging the community in the development of the memorial. As part of this, we are inviting people to submit designs for the memorial. A $1,000 honorarium will be awarded to the artist whose design is selected through a juried process, and the artist will be credited at the memorial site. The final design selected for the Memorial to the Enslaved will become the sole property of Goodwood Museum & Gardens.
Enrolled students, recent graduates, and artists with ties to Tallahassee, Florida, are eligible to submit a proposal for their design work to be considered for the Goodwood Memorial to the Enslaved. Individuals with expertise in the study areas of art, design, architecture, engineering, and environmental sciences, or individuals with creative interest and design skills are welcome to submit proposals. Students invited to submit include those enrolled in local high school art programs (Grades 9-12) and college students attending Florida Agricultural & Mechanical University, Florida State University, Tallahassee Community College, and Lively Technical College. Black artists/designers are encouraged to apply.
All interested individuals are invited to Goodwood Museum & Gardens to learn more about the property’s history and the vision for the Memorial to the Enslaved.
