  • Brief Description

    Odessa Arts, in conjunction with the City of Odessa invites professional artists or artist teams to submit qualifications to design and fabricate a significant piece for the renovated Floyd Gwin Park. This piece will be funded through the City’s Percent for Art ordinance and become an addition to the City of Odessa’s public art collection. In 2021, the City of Odessa Parks & Recreation broke ground on a $6 million renovation of Floyd Gwin Park, the city’s second largest park. The artwork should reflect a sense of joy and happiness, welcoming visitors to the park. The artwork should also incorporate a theme of aviation (see Site History). It should also be a source of comfort and pride for the community. The Public Art Committee seeks works by professional artists to add to and integrate with the City of Odessa and its growing collection of public art. The artwork should be bright and colorful, inviting the public to interact with it.
