$200,000 for I-4 Ultimate Public Art Project

The Orange County Public Art Review Board is seeking an artist or artist team(s) to develop artwork for a dedicated site located to the south of I-4 at the Grand National Drive overpass to provide an artistically rich installation that will capture the character and culture of our community, and visually enhance the public space.


The budget for this project is $200,000.


The Deadline to submit applications is Wednesday November 6, 2019. Submit Here


The site is located northeast of I-4 at the Kirkman Road exit ramp, across Grand National Drive from the western terminus of Oak Ridge Road. The site falls within the boundaries of both the City of Orlando and the International Drive overlay plan.


Orange County is one of six jurisdictions commissioning art along the 21-mile stretch of the I-4 Ultimate project with part of the $1.5 million Project Art Endowment. In addition to the Orange County project, five other municipalities have received funds from the committee: the City of Orlando, the Town of Eatonville, Winter Park, Maitland and Altamonte Springs.


The art portion of the I-4 Ultimate project will be integrated into the project landscape to enhance the interstate corridor along I-4, creating a more scenic and cultural experience for motorists and pedestrians.


Funding for the art project is from the I-4 Ultimate Project Art Endowment Committee, consisting of representatives of I-4 Mobility Partners, FDOT and the construction joint venture of Skanska Granite Lane (SGL Constructors).
