Art at Sponge Docks Roundabout — Tarpon Springs Public Art Committee Seeks to Commission Artist for Site Design and Installation
The Tarpon Springs Public Art Committee (TSPAC) seeks to commission an artistic site design and installation to showcase Glenna Goodacre’s “Naiads” sculptures. The Naiads in Greek mythology are nature goddesses of fresh water. Goodacre portrayed these water nymphs with four life-size sculptures each illustrating the expressiveness for which Goodacre is known. Images and diagrams are included under “View Site Details.”
The scope of work includes an illustrated design concept, materials, construction, and installation within an existing respite area. Materials and craftmanship must be durable, low maintenance, and include a five-year warranty. The TSPAC requests that the artist be on site for installation of the Naiads sculptures as a consultant.
The preliminary budget for Roundabout site design, materials, construction, installation, and shipping costs is $25,000, but additional funds could be allocated to the project if the design merits. The competition is open to all artists, age 18 and older, residing in the United States.
