Port Everglades - Cruise Roadway Project 

 

In partnership with Broward County’s Port Everglades, the Broward Cultural Division’s Public Art & Design Program seeks to commission one artist or artist-led team to transform an empty traffic circle with a work of public art. Located on Eller Drive in Port Everglades, the artwork will be seen by passing vehicles, a parking facility and three major cruise terminals – as well as those aboard nearby docked and moving cruise and cargo ships. Artistically enhancing the local environs of Port Everglades, the traffic circle’s artwork may even become one of its most iconic symbols.

Port Everglades:
Exterior Artwork for Cruise Terminal 25’s Grand Plaza 
 

 
 In partnership with Broward County’s Port Everglades, the Broward Cultural Division’s Public Art & Design Program seeks to commission one artist or artist-led team to design, fabricate and install one or more pieces of exterior art for the Grand Plaza of Cruise Terminal 25. Investing over $100 million in the overhaul of Cruise Terminal 25 – Royal Caribbean’s preferred berth – Port Everglades will house the celebrated cruise line’s newest ships in word-class style. Reinforcing the aesthetics of Royal Caribbean’s high-tech cruise ships, the exterior artwork of Cruise Terminal 25 will draw inspiration from the Celebrity Edge SM. Bringing the outside in, the cutting-edge ship redefines the cruise experience for today’s global travelers.
 

Attracting pedestrian and vehicular traffic, the open-air Grand Plaza – whose covered entryway measures 15 feet and 10 inches in height – is ideal for weather-resistant artwork designed for daylight viewing. Artwork may be attached to – or suspended from – the Grand Plaza’s ceiling structure or placed along a six-foot-wide walkway leading to the ground-floor lobby of Cruise Terminal 25.
