Literally… the City of Sarasota is calling on local Sarasota and Manatee County artists to submit their designs to replace the 16 x 16 grey tiles on the sidewalks of lower Main downtown Sarasota with their own original works of art .

I love this idea and so appropriate since we are known for our arts here in Sarasota.

The deadline for submissions is July 28, 2009
and installation is planned for September / October beginning at Sarasota News & Books and moving north.
