  • Brief Description

    The City of Fort Lauderdale invites professional artists to submit proposals for a unique public art project that will adorn four lifeguard towers along the city's bustling beachfront, enhancing the cultural tapestry of the community and contributing to its vibrant atmosphere. This initiative is a testament to the city's commitment to showcasing diverse artistic expressions and fostering a sense of place.
    Tower 8, reflecting the historically LGBTQIA+ friendly environment of Sebastian Street Beach, is designated for an LGBTQIA+ theme. All artworks must withstand humid outdoor conditions, adhere to Florida building codes, and use durable vinyl wrapping. The visibility of essential beach signage (warning flags, rip currents, lifeguard status, and tower numbers) must be maintained.
