Calling All Artists! Applications Now Accepted Art Display Wanted at Orange County Fire Rescue Training Center
Application Deadline: September 27, 2022
Orange County, Fla. – The Orange County Public Art Review Board is now accepting applications from artists or artist teams to develop artwork for the entrance of the new Orange County Fire Rescue Training Facility now under construction in Orlando, Florida. The facility will include an artistically designed building for classroom instruction, as well as a training field for recruits to practice new skills.
The Orange County Fire Rescue Training Center will not be for public use, but will be greatly enhanced by a statuesque work of art that will serve as a landmark for the entrance into the facility. Possibilities for Public Art could include a free-standing sculpture with artistic signage or decorative fencing. Visible from the road, the art should be mission focused to Fire Rescue, which is to serve the citizens of Orange County by saving lives and property.
