Brief Description

Hillsborough County (County) is interested in receiving submissions from artists demonstrating their ability to provide completely realized three dimensional artworks for exterior display at the new Andrews Library now under construction. The library is located in the College Hill neighborhood of Tampa and is named after the late publisher of the Florida Sentinel Bulletin. Possible themes for the artwork include subjects relating to the family and reading. As the library also serves as a polling place, the sculpture may also reference themes relating to civic life. The piece should require very low maintenance. The selected artist(s) will be responsible for the design, fabrication, and installation of the permanent artwork.
