Broward Addiction Recovery Center Project and Nancy J. Cotterman Center Project
DEADLINE: 1/29/2013

Jury Fee: $0.00

The Broward Cultural Division’s Public Art & Design Program is seeking to commission one or two artists or artist teams to design, build and install functionally integrated public art projects for the Broward Addiction Recovery Center servicing adult residents of Broward County struggling with substance abuse, and the Nancy J. Cotterman Center servicing victims of sexual assault and child abuse crimes.

Artwork opportunities include but are not limited to durable, low maintenance enhancements to the building interiors, exterior courtyards and therapeutic gardens. Specific locations for artwork opportunities are to be determined as a result of collaboration and interaction with project team and agency during design team meetings after the artist is selected. The addition of functionally integrated public art to this project is intended to affect attitude, emotional state and perception in a positive and uplifting way, create hope and help clients better cope with difficulties, and result in environments that are more welcoming and uplifting for clients, their families and visitors.

These projects are on a fast track for the artist selection process and for the artist to collaborate with the design team to integrate the artwork to the site. The architect has been selected and schematic design for the two facilities has already commenced. Interested artists should apply only if they are able to commit intensive time to the project during the spring of 2013 when the most effective collaborations with the design team are anticipated to occur.
