Realize Bradenton invites southwest Florida artists to submit qualifications to design a public art postcard to be placed in the Village of the Arts that interprets the history and vibrancy of the iconic arts district. All 2D media are eligible. Designs will be digitized and produced in a ceramic panel for exterior installation.

RB will commission one public art postcard depicting the history, sights and vibrancy of the Village of the Arts. The staff of the Manatee County Historical Records Library will assist artists with research and documentation. The design style does not have to be historic or vintage. All artists' styles and approaches to creating images will be considered. If not already digital, the finished art will be digitized by the selected artist and produced in a ceramic panel mounted on steel for exterior display.

The selected artist will be paid a design fee of $3,000.

A complete description of the project and instructions for applying for the commission can be found here on the Realize Bradenton website. The deadline for submissions is Monday, July 16.
