CALL TO FLORIDA ARTIST FL...
Description

FLOR500 is a participatory art, nature, and history project marking the importance of the moment when the history of Florida changed forever and giving us a glimpse of what its landscape was like 500 years ago. Developed by Xavier Cortada, director and artist-in-residence of FIU’s College of Architecture + The Arts’ Office of Engaged Creativity, the project will commemorate Florida’s quincentennial in 2013.

Five hundred artists are being invited to depict 500 native wildflowers- the same that grew in our state when Juan Ponce de Leon landed in 1513 and named it “La Florida”-from “flor,” the Spanish word for flower. The artwork, along with information about each flower, will be posted on the project website.

Artist interested in participating are to select a wildflower from our list and interpret it in the media and style of their choice. For further information please go to www.FLOR500.com or contact us at flor500@fiu.edu.
