Brief Description

The space available for the artwork traffic circle has a 75-ft. diameter (approximately 4,500 sq. ft.). The artwork shall be located toward the center of the circle, avoiding the periphery. The artwork should not block traffic sight-lines. The artwork shall have a 3-dimensional quality and may contain a landscape component. There is not a minimum height requirement, but the height should not exceed 20 feet. Although the site has electricity and underground water capabilities all artwork features, including landscaping, must be low maintenance. This is not an opportunity for pools or water features. Port Everglades operates during daylight hours and nighttime viewing of the artwork will be limited. Artwork that features lighting, solely for nighttime interest, will not be appropriate for this project. The area around the traffic circle is not pedestrian friendly and the artwork should not be designed to encourage photo/selfie opportunities or to be used as a children play area.
