Gulf Gate Library Seeking Artists to Create Sculpture from Reclaimed Copper

Visual Arts


The Sarasota County Libraries, in partnership with the Friends of the Gulf Gate Library, is seeking to commission a sculpture to be located in the lobby of the Gulf Gate Library, and has issued a call to artists.

Sections of copper roofing which were saved prior to demolition of the previous Gulf Gate Library are to be transformed into artwork that will create excitement and interest in the community, honor and commemorate the rich history of the library, celebrate the impact the library has on the community, inspire people to remember the past influence of the library and engage in life-long learning opportunities at the library. A committee comprised of members of the Gulf Gate Library staff, Friends of the Gulf Gate Library members, and Sarasota County staff will review all applications and choose finalists who will have the opportunity to present their concepts to the committee. The call to artists expires on June 7, and the selected artist will be announced on June 28, 2019.

The call to artists and application can be found at the link below.
