The City of Orlando is looking for an artist to create a bronze relief sculpture for its new fire station in Parramore.

The artist must have sculpting experience and professional knowledge of bronze technique. The winner’s artwork will be displayed on the front wall of the $4.9 million Pride of Parramore station, which opened last month.

The work of art should reflect the history of Fire Station 2, originally built in 1926. The sculpture must also have some meaning and significance to the surrounding community.

There is a $22,500 budget for the project with an artist honorarium of $2,500.

The City of Orlando’s Public Art Advisory Board will recommend an artist for approval to the City Council.

Deadline for submissions is May 31st.
