Clearwater Downtown Boat Slips RenderingA portion of the funding for the Clearwater Downtown Boat Slips and Promenade project, currently under construction, is set aside for public art, and city officials are seeking public opinion on the type of artwork that should be installed at the project site. The Clearwater Public Art and Design Program, coordinator for the city’s artwork installations, is planning a public workshop to discuss the themes and types of artwork that that might be appropriate for the project. Information gathered at this workshop will aid the development of a national call to artists to solicit potential artwork and artists.

The Downtown Boat Slip project, with an anticipated completion in Spring 2010, is expected to transform the city’s urban waterfront into an active, dynamic destination for local and visiting boaters. The addition of high-quality public artwork will help ensure that the site becomes one of Clearwater’s main destination points and contributes to the city’s public image to citizens and visitors alike.  

The workshop will be held Thursday, January 7th from 5:30 to 6:30 p.m. at the Clearwater Main Library – Meeting Room A/B. The Library is located at 100 N. Osceola Avenue in Downtown Clearwater.
