Call For Artists

“For the Birds” is the Arts Council's first open exhibit of 2023. We see birds every day as they glide effortlessly through the air and feed at our bird feeders. Birds inspire and fascinate us as they connect us with the natural world. For this exhibit, artwork should use birds as the primary subject matter and/or muse for expression and creation, and may focus on their physical appearance, habitat, flight and migration patterns, songs, or other attributes. “For the Birds” will open on Friday, February 3, and close Saturday, February 25, with artwork due at the Arts Council on January 31.

Click here for the registration form for "For the Birds." Registration may be completed online or in person at the Arts Council.

City of Brevard Public Art Policy​

"In order to beautify public areas, enhance the quality of life for Brevard citizens, attract tourism, promote arts and culture, and encourage businesses to locate within the city, thus expanding Brevard’s economic base, it is the policy of the City of Brevard to promote public art, where appropriate, through the implementation of a clarified process and design guidelines."

In February 2021, the Brevard City Council adopted a Public Art Policy and Application Process, which defines "public art" as "art on publicly- or privately-owned non-residential property that is visible from public streets and pedestrian walkways to be approved by City Council prior to installation."
