Deadline: September 30, 11:59 pm EST
In partnership with Port Everglades, Broward Cultural Division’s Public Art & Design Program is seeking to commission one artist or artist team to design and install artwork that enhances interior spaces within Cruise Terminal 29, Port Everglades, located in Fort Lauderdale, Florida. The prominent location presents an opportunity for highly visible and vibrant artwork that contributes to Port Everglades’ unique identity.
Anticipated Art Project Schedule:
Selection of Shortlisted Artists: October 2020
Shortlisted Artist’s Interviews, and Artist Selection: November 2020
Artwork Completion and Installation: TBD, as coordinated with Port Everglades and no later than early 2021
Terminal 29 includes a spacious ticketing hall, a baggage claim hall, waiting rooms, and an embarkation room. Artwork by multiple artists can be found throughout the facility. Unlike other cruise terminals at Port Everglades, Terminal 29 has not been updated in the last ten years and may be extensively renovated or completely replaced in the future.
Site Description and Design Parameters
The artwork may be hand-painted directly onto walls adjacent to the staircase/escalator that takes passengers to and from the second-floor embarkation room or may be hung on the walls. Additional enhancements may physically adhere to the walls. Artistic components requiring engineering and mechanical fasteners would not be appropriate. Materials should be able to withstand humid environments.
The selected artist will be required to enter into an agreement with the County, visit the site, and install the artwork.
Art Project Budget
The total budget established for this project will not exceed $3,000. The budget must include Artist’s design fee, any required ladders, lifts or scaffolding, artwork materials, installation, insurance, travel, Artist’s contingency, and all applicable taxes.
Artists must be 18 years of age.
Artists must reside in Florida.
Artists must not have been previously selected for a Broward County public art commission in the past 10 years.
Applications must be submitted via the Submittable website:

The application process requires artists to review and accept the terms of the Broward County Standard Agreement before applying to the Call to Artists. Please refer to the Agreement:
The Broward Cultural Division manages the application process. An Artist Selection Panel (Panel) will review the applications and shortlist artists based on the excellence of previous work, as demonstrated by the visuals and other submission materials. The Panel will also consider the versatility and appropriateness of the media in which the applicant has demonstrated proficiency, as it relates to the scope of this project.
Shortlisted artists will have approximately three weeks to prepare a conceptual design proposal for review by the Panel. Each shortlisted artist will be paid an honorarium to develop this conceptual design proposal. Shortlisted artists must submit one (1) digital copy (PC compatible media) of their full presentation five (5) business days before the presentation to the Panel.
