Call to Artists for Historical Public Art in Bradenton

Published Friday, January 25, 2013

BRADENTON -- Professional artists with experience are invited to apply to the Bradenton Central Community Redevelopment Authority to design and build exterior art for (1) the entrance to the grocery store to be built at Minnie L Rogers Plaza and Retail Center, at 201 13thAve, and/or (2) a free standing panel for a bus shelter on the site. This location has 75 years of documented history as the site of an African American educational, recreational, and community facility. It is particularly linked to the West Bradenton Woman's Club, of which Minnie Rogers was a key founder and leader.

Imaginative approaches are sought to interpret the African American history of the site in a free standing form and materials that will be permanent in the Florida environment. Eligible artists must have a body of relevant, professional work and an affinity for working with historical source material. Artists may apply for one or both. For detailed description of the project and information on how to apply go to http://www.bradentonccra.com/#!minutes-budgets-notices/c17hk. The application deadline is February 28, 2013. Address questions to Ann Wykell at: awykell@ddabradenton.com

 

A community redevelopment area of the City of Bradenton, the Central Community Redevelopment Agency was created in July 12, 2000 under the authority of sections 163.330-163.45 of the Florida Statutes and funded by Tax Increment Financing (TIF) revenue as a special taxing district of the City of Bradenton. Charged with the redevelopment of a district designated as neglected and blighted, this designation provides the CCRA a dedicated funding source to support targeted economic development projects and allows the CCRA to leverage outside funds to expand the reach of the TIF revenue.
