Call for Public Art - History & Culture Trail Project



In partnership with the Blueprint Intergovernmental Agency, COCA seeks public art proposals that celebrate the rich history and culture of the areas surrounding the Capital Cascades Trail and FAMU Way Extension projects.

There are five artwork sites along the trail, each with a corresponding theme. Submitted works will be judged on creativity and responsiveness to the artwork themes.

The proposed artworks should:

  • Highlight the history of the Tallahassee African-American community who has historically called the Project area home, as well as the significant history of FAMU
  • Improve civic engagement, enhance civil discourse, and encourage thoughtful and meaningful dialogue among people regarding the story of the surrounding communities
  • Enhance the tolerance, diversity, and understanding of our communal history
  • Add cultural value by communicating Tallahassee’s unique identity, social value by engaging opportunities for interaction and self-reflection

COCA will manage the submission and selection process and convene a panel who will select artworks for installation. Preliminary selection will occur by this panel, and final selection will be determined by the Intergovernmental Agency Board. Select artists will receive a lump sum award for design, materials, fabrication, and installation. Selected artworks will be incorporated into the project and permanently displayed along the Capital Cascades Trail on FAMU Way.
