    City Background
    The city of Clearwater is a vibrant coastal community of approximately 115,500 citizens located on Florida’s Gulf Coast. Clearwater is a progressive city that is committed to enhancing residents’ lives while preserving a heritage that is rich in culture and exquisite in landscape. Located approximately 30 minutes from both Tampa and St. Petersburg, Clearwater enjoys immediate access to natural amenities such as the Gulf of Mexico and Tampa Bay, and cultural offerings from a variety of museums, galleries, concert venues and theaters. Clearwater Beach is consistently voted one of the best beaches in the U.S. and brings in millions of visitors from around the world annually.

    Site (Site Elevation Plan)
    The sculpture will be placed on the west corner of the Marina Walk facing Coronado Dr. Designs can range in size, but the base should not exceed 7’ in dimeter. Maximum height is 15’ with the base. Please keep in mind daily Florida heat can exceed 90 degrees in the summer, sometimes with 100% humidity. Our area also has weekly thunderstorms in the summer as well as occasional tropical storms and hurricanes. Structures should be designed and built to withstand the elements (with the exception of hurricanes).


    The selected artist, or artist team, will be awarded a comprehensive contract. The artist will be responsible for artwork design, fabrication, materials, installation, insurance, travel, public presentations, meetings with City of Clearwater staff as necessary, identification plaque, and all related incidental expenses.
