Brief Description

Northwest Florida is a part of the migratory pattern of the Monarch butterfly, and every fall we witness tens of thousands of these beautiful creatures enjoying the indigenous flora that lives in Walton County. The Cultural Arts Alliance of Walton County (CAA), the organization that created the nation's first Underwater Museum of Art, requests proposals from artists or artist groups to design, fabricate, and install small-scale or mid-scale permanent outdoor works of art along the Monarch Art Trail (MAT). Eight (8) pieces of work that are inspired by, representative of, or celebrating the natural environment of Northwest Florida and/or the natural migration of the Monarch butterfly through our region will be installed along a one mile stretch of bike path that connects Highway 98 with Scenic Highway 30A. The Trail will be complimented with seating, lighting, signage, and landscape design that includes native species attractive to butterflies. Installation will be November 1 – 10, 2021.
