Cultural Council issues call for public art

Florida artists are invited to submit two- and three-dimensional works of art for possible display in Daytona Beach Regional Airport’s terminal, which is undergoing major renovations.

The Volusia County Council has allocated $65,000 for the purchase or commissioning of artwork to be displayed in six designated public areas. The Cultural Council of Volusia County, which oversees the county’s Art in Public Places program, will review proposals and make recommendations to the County Council for final approval.

The Art in Public Places program, established in 1990, requires that the county procure art for all new construction, major additions or renovation of county owned buildings.

Submissions, which are due by Feb. 14, will be considered in any style and medium. The work does not have to be thematic, but the selection committee welcomes submissions that incorporate design elements of aviation or sun, sand and surf.
