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
contemporary architecture to the Florida vernacular design of the original 1994 building. To

detention basin.

Eligibility:

We’re looking for one individual or group aged 13-18 to create a brand new piece of music in response to the current climate emergency. 

As part of the project you’ll receive a budget of £200, support from a professional musician, and the opportunity to record your work and perform it live. 

The theme

“We are right now at the beginning of a climate and ecological crisis. Now is not the time for speaking politely. Now is the time to speak clearly. We need to call it what it is: an emergency.”
Greta Thunberg

On Friday 20 September young people around the world walked out of school to demand action on global warming and climate change. They say that the steps taken by governments and corporations aren’t enough - they’re just playing for time, delaying the inevitable. Drastic action is needed today to really make a difference.

Music is a powerful tool for raising awareness and motivating people into action. We will support you to think creatively about environmental issues, and inspire change through music. We want you to be playful and ambitious - this is your chance to create something for the future. 

What’s involved

You will:

  • Create new music in response to the theme (this could be 2-3 short pieces or one longer piece) between November 2019 and March 2020 
  • Record your music professionally at Box Yard Studios in Manchester
  • Showcase your work at our Sing City live night in March 2020

We will:

  • Connect you with a professional musician who will guide and support you throughout the creative process
  • Give you a budget of £200. This could be spent on: 
  • Field trips to spark creative ideas
  • Artist fees (e.g. if you would like to bring in other people to work with you such as a band, AV artist, dancer or filmmaker)
  • Equipment/instruments/materials needed to create and perform

Who it’s for

  • Individuals or groups aged 13-18
  • Based in Greater Manchester, Cheshire or Merseyside

Whether you see yourself as a composer, songwriter or producer, whether you use acoustic instruments or electronically generated sounds - we’re interested in hearing from musicians of all genres and backgrounds.

How to apply

Please complete a short online form* telling us a bit about yourself, your musical interests and experience, and why you are interested in this opportunity.

Deadline: Mon 28 Oct, 10am

Everybody that applies will be given the opportunity to take part in an exclusive songwriting workshop during February 2020 half term.

Photo Credit: WOLF' by Marion Spencer, Fall Movement 2018, by Kathryn Butler

CPR - Center for Performance Research in Brooklyn, New York is pleased to accept applications for Fall Movement 2019. CPR invites applications from artists working within the various aspects of dance and performance, as well as pieces that incorporate technological and visual art elements. Please keep in mind CPR has a LED repertory plot, projection capabilities and a full sound system. No additional equipment can be provided. Pieces proposed for presentation should be no more than 15 minutes in length, including any setup or breakdown. CPR loves to host artists from outside of New York, but cannot pay for any travel costs or help with accommodations in NYC at this time.
 
If you would like to be a part of Fall Movement 2019, please fill out the following application form. Please note that incomplete applications will not be accepted. Limit one submission per applicant. We strongly suggest applying with a video of the proposed work (even if it is rehearsal footage). However, a video of an alternative work will be accepted. 

We only accept continuous footage from a single work; please do not submit a performance or choreography reel. We can only accept video samples shared via online video sites such as Vimeo, YouTube, etc. Please make sure that the link works properly before submitting your application, and include cue points for all videos, noting that panelists will likely only watch 1-2 minutes of footage. 

In order to apply, artists need to be available to perform any of the three nights of the festival, as we cannot accommodate specific scheduling requests. Submissions will be reviewed by CPR Staff and artistic advisors, and 6 will be chosen for presentation during Fall Movement. 
 
If your work is chosen, you will receive two fully produced performances in CPR’s theater space during the course of the three night festival. CPR will provide a small honorarium to the selected choreographers. This performance will include the support of CPR’s technical and production staff, as well as full marketing support. Selected artists will have one technical rehearsal between November 5-6 in the evening. You may state a preference, but need to make every attempt to be available for any of these nights. Participating artists will be entitled to two complimentary tickets for the night of their performance.
