Brief Description

The City of Fort Myers Public Art Committee is requesting artists to submit qualifications for a public art project in a new park that is being constructed in The Forum, a 706-acre master-planned, mixed-use development east of I-75 between Colonial Boulevard (Exit 136) and SR 82 (Exit 138). The Forum contains dense retail, residential, and office sites. It was originally developed by a group spearheaded by former NBA star and renowned coach Pat Riley. In fact, The Forum takes its name from the arena that is home to the world champion Los Angeles Lakers basketball team. However, the proposed park will not include any basketball courts.

By and through its Public Art Committee, the City of Fort Myers seeks to commission an artist/artist team to create a site-specific exterior work of public art that will aesthetically enhance the park.
