Entry Deadline: 2/28/19
The City of Sarasota, Florida is sponsoring an outdoor landmark sculpture for placement within a future roadway roundabout at the intersection of 14th Street and US 41 (N. Tamiami Trail) near a downtown location. This project is related to a public art initiative that is focused on acquiring public works of art that will be permanently displayed in numerous roundabouts that will be constructed during the next decade. The City intends to construct approximately 16 new roundabouts by 2025 which will incorporate public artwork in the center islands. There is no central theme for the overall collection of sculpture in these future roundabouts. This Call to Artists is only for the roundabout to be located at 14th Street and US 41; a separate Call to Artists has also been issued for a roundabout to be located at 10th Street and US 41.
