Florida’s Art in State Buildings (ASB) Program is requesting qualifications from artists for a commissioned art opportunity for the new District Court of Appeal courthouse located in downtown West Palm Beach on Tamarind Avenue between Clematis and Datura streets (111 S Tamarind Ave). The Art Selection Committee would like to commission artwork for one or more of four (4) possible exterior sites surrounding the courthouse. They are also open to purchasing existing artworks. The artwork should not depict any overt or obvious symbol of the court but should – in a realistic, naturalistic or even abstract way – reflect, embody and convey the enduring strength, dignity and stature of the American court system. The courthouse will be 40,495 square feet and will be able to accommodate up to 98 employees. This Fourth District
Court of Appeal hears a number of cases from a broad geographic area and diverse demographic.
For both commissioned and purchased artwork, the stated budget is all inclusive, providing for design, fabrication, installation and photo-documentation. All outdoor artwork must be low
maintenance and resistant to the extremes of Florida’s heat and humidity
