The City of Ocala’s Art in City Spaces program provides the opportunity for artists and art organizations to exhibit their artwork in a public City space. Interested parties must first submit an application, and, upon approval, an exhibit agreement is executed and an exhibition time is scheduled.
The City of Ocala recommend that artist(s) plan on delivering a minimum of 20 works for a show in any of the City spaces. Spaces are available on a first come, first serve basis to approved applicants. The City of Ocala reserves the right to adjust the exhibit display in an effort to showcase the artist’s work in the best possible way. The City of Ocala will have the sole discretion in selecting the works to install.
Exhibits are typically 3 months in length. Spaces available for exhibits include:
- City Hall, 1st Floor Lobby, 110 SE Watula Avenue, Ocala, FL 34471
- Recreation and Parks Administration Building (Conference Room)
- City of Ocala Adult Activity Centers (8th Avenue Senior Center and Barbara Gaskin Washington Center)
The City of Ocala seeks interesting, thought provoking exhibits that are appropriate for a public City space where work will be viewed by citizens and guests of all ages. Only complete applications are reviewed. Viewer engagement, artist intent and originality of ideas, and use of media and technique are all considered when an application is being considered for approval.
