Brief Description

The City of Jacksonville seeks an artist team to transform the 3-acre lawn at the Duval County Courthouse into a work of public art. The new artwork should succeed visually, environmentally and spatially for pedestrians. The ground plane should have multiple zones that could be created with targeted hardscape, grade changes like earth berms, shade structures and lighting. The artwork could extend overhead and make patterns against the sky or show moving lights at night. From the surrounding multi-story buildings and flying drones, the vision from above might be perceived as an icon for Jacksonville.
