Summary Artists’ Brief

The ‘Call to Artists’ summarised the scope for the artwork: ‘One site-specific design for a temporary or permanent project to be located in downtown Broward identified by artist following research and interaction with Country and Community representatives. Maximum public impact and visibility is highly desirable. Artwork should reinforce a memorable ‘Sense of Place’ in the collective imagination of residents and visitors that is compatible with Broward Country objectives.’
