The City of Pompano Beach Public Art Program was awarded the Community Foundation of Broward Grant- Art of Community Grant. The City, who’s grant is entitled Asphalt Art - The Crossroads Connection, along with Pompano Beach artist Bill Savarese and the City Utilities Department worked with the community and local schools in the form of community engagement activities and surveys. These activities helped lead artist Bill Savarese design 4 asphalt murals and 8 storm drain murals. The 8 storm drain murals were installed in a community event where locals helped paint the murals themselves. The 4 asphalt murals will be installed in 2022. All 12 murals will be located in the Innovations District on SW 1st Ave. between Atlantic Blvd. and SW 2nd St. and on SW 1st Ct. between SW 2nd St. and South Cypress Rd. The project created an opportunity to educate, energize, and engage our entire community while celebrating our City’s unique characteristics through public art.
