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. One artist design will be selected by a jury and awarded a $1,000 honorarium. Goodwood will credit the selected artist at the memorial site. The final design chosen 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 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 are eligible to apply. In addition, 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.
