Call to Artists project descriptions are issued periodically by the City of Delray Beach that has building projects. Links to those project descriptions will be posted in the list of Current Calls (below). Note: City submission requirements may vary. Be sure to read each project description carefully.
Artists on the City’s mailing list who have checked “Public Art Advisory Board/Artist Registry” will be notified of these projects via email. Join the mailing list. It will be the artist's responsibility to maintain their correct email address on the mailing list.
  • Calls to Artists include a complete description and requirements for that project.
  • Artists decide if their work "fits" a project's description and then submit an entry to that project.
  • Artists may enter multiple projects but, because each project has its own art selection committee, they must send a separate entry for each project.
  • Galleries and artist's representatives are encouraged to submit materials for their artists.
Please make sure you are on the Public Advisory Art Board email list to receive more information or updates.
