It was the architectural ‘stack’ feature jutting through the roof of a gritty little micro-strip mall building (circa 1955) in Sanford, Florida that inspired Jennifer Lindquist to develop this public art project. The 'stack' with its characteristic mid-century shape was calling for an interesting art mural that, not some commercial signage.
The building sits on the very busy US Route 17/92/French Avenue, an entry corridor to Sanford's historic downtown. With a high ratio of strip mall buildings and a cacophony of commercial signage, Lindquist saw this one building as an opportunity for artistic intervention. She invited fellow artists, Ysabel Flores and Jasmine Ramos, to help transform the site into a mini public art gallery with hopes that it inspires future Public Art projects down this corridor.
A $1000 grant from the Awesome Foundation of Orlando has already been awarded to this project. This seed-money was instrumental in launching this project.
The Awesome Foundation grant and donations from a Kickstarter crowdfunding campaign covers the costs of supplies, materials, prep-work, scaffolding and a $200 stipend for each of the featured artists.
