Elayna Toby Singer
Palm Beach County's Art in Public Places program (PBC AiPP) seeks to commission an Artist or Artist team (Artist) to create sculptures that support Palm Beach County Parks and Recreation Department’s goals of promoting healthy, happy living for residents and visitors utilizing Canyon District Park.
The selected Artist will design, permit, fabricate, install and attach art onto five (5) outdoor light poles located along Ben Ferencz Way, within the park. Specified poles can take an excess load equivalent to 350 pounds each to account for art that will result from this Call to Artists. Commissioned art will be inspired by the diverse active recreational opportunities offered within the park such as soccer, lacrosse, baseball, softball, sand volleyball as well as walking, picnicking and playground use.
The mission of Canyon District Park is to provide an active recreational facility that primarily serves the population located within West Boynton Beach and West Delray Beach in unincorporated Palm Beach County. The recreational amenities identified for construction were determined by feedback from the local community as well as overall level of service needs established in the County’s Comprehensive Plan.
Palm Beach County Canyon District Park is 52 acres. The five (5) light poles designated for art integration are near a centrally located parking lot and three (3) sports fields. The selected artists will create artwork for each of the five (5) light poles. County will install light poles for Artist to attach their art to.
The image that follows is a section of the site plan with the five (5) light pole locations identified in red.
