PROJECT NAME: Peter & Julie Cummings Library Outdoor Space
LOCATION: 2551 SW Matheson Ave., Palm City, FL 34990
Physical Address: Same as above
DUE DATE OF APPLICATION: November 8, 2019
TOTAL BUDGET: $30,000.00
ONE SENTENCE DESCRIPTION: The Martin County Public Art Advisory Committee is
seeking to purchase or commission a public artwork for the Peter & Julie Cummings
Library Outdoor Space located in Palm City.

Located on Florida's Treasure Coast, Martin County has an abundance of natural beauty,
beginning at its coastline where one may witness a giant sea turtle lumbering ashore to lay its
eggs in the sand. The rivers are wild and scenic, filled with a vast array of tropical flora and
fauna. Preservation and appreciation of the untouched splendor is of utmost importance to the
people who live, work and vacation in the area. The county seat is Stuart. The population is
approximately 155,000.

ARTWORK DESCRIPTION, SCHEDULE AND BUDGET
Artwork Description
An outdoor pavilion has recently been constructed near the northern perimeter of the library
parking lot, approachable by a 6-foot-wide sidewalk from the front entrance. This informal,
outdoor, covered space is used as an extension of the library for a variety of library programs
and is available to the public for other leisure activities.
The primary location for a public art installation is a 63’ x 8’ grassy area between a row of live
oaks bordering the parking pavement and the 6’ wide concrete sidewalk and its 1.5’ wide
grass border. Please see the attached location map and pictures. This walkway can be
enhanced but must remain ADA compliant as the pathway to the 30’ square, open, wood
pavilion with metal roof. Possible design elements could feature sensory or interactive
components, which could include low maintenance landscaping elements, along the walkway
that complement the adjacent nature preserve leading to the pavilion. This aesthetic
enhancement may have a literary theme or relate to libraries/books, may be colorful or
whimsical and should appeal to residents of all ages. Sensory or interactive components
could have a musical/auditory aspect initiated by the viewer, a visual component experience
or a combined sensory experience.
The secondary location is an open, grassy area to the west of the pavilion, separated from the
parking pavement by a row of cypress trees. This area is appropriate for a kinetic or stationary
work that is not interactive but can be passively and easily viewed and enjoyed from the
pavilion or the parking area. The space measures 24’ x 60’ and overlooks the water detention area. Kinetic components could be incorporated in either area.

SITE AND RELATED DEPARTMENT
Founded in 1957, the Martin County Library System consists of six library locations, our online
library, and strategic outreach services to childcare centers and other local organizations. The
Library connects with our residents in-person, online, over the phone, and through social
networking tools such as Facebook and Instagram. As of 2019, the Library operates with a
budget of approximately $3.8 million and 49 full time equivalent staff. Over 62% of our
residents have Library cards and approximately 19,000 people visit our six locations each
week. The Library Foundation and our Friends members support the Library through their
voices, their time, and their generous financial support. Our volunteers donate over 22,000
hours to our libraries each year, shelving books, running our bookstores, and performing
other important activities. The Library continually seeks partnership opportunities with people
and organizations throughout Martin County. Partners include the Early Learning Coalition,
the United Way, the Martin County School District, colleges and museums. Many of our
partners provide experts who share their knowledge and skills with our residents through
Library classes and workshops.
Building (or Site) Description: (General description of the building site)
The Peter & Julie Cummings Library is located in Palm City, FL and bounded by a 4 acre
upland pine and wetland preserve. This is in a residential area with 3 elementary schools, one
middle school and several golf communities serving families and retirees with some seasonal
residents. In 2009, the library was expanded to 20,000 square feet, adding a second story of
