OPA-LOCKA COMMUNITY REDEVELOPMENT AUTHORITY SEEKS DIRECTOR OF PUBLIC ART

Open Until Filled/ Target Summer 2014

 

The Opa-locka (FL) Community Development Corporation is engaged in a transformative initiative to revitalize the neighborhoods and downtown of the historic community in north Miami-Dade County. Over the last four years, ambitious arts projects and programs have become critical elements in the overall strategy. To lead its growing arts program, OLCDC seeks an energetic leader who will be responsible for executing the Opa-locka public arts master plan.

The Director of Public Art will report directly to the Chief Executive Officer and manage a staff of two, in addition to several consultants. With funding from the National Endowment for the Arts, and several national and regional foundations, OLCDC has engaged several regionally and nationally recognized artists to create site-specific installations. The Director will have primary responsibility for managing the installation of art projects. This involves interaction with artists, city and county officials, landscape and engineering professionals, contractors and other disciplines. The Director will work with artists and designers to refine concepts, as well as manage budgets and timelines.
