Pompano Beach Florida Public Art
Local Artist Frank Polanco photography works unveiled as Public Art in the City of Oakland Park
Pompano Beach, FL, February 8th, 2019 As on of the selected artist by the City of Pompano Beach Florida, local artist Frank Polanco digital photographs were just unveiled around this city as public art. The images selected were used to wrap some of the many utility boxes around the city.
This work can be found in the intersection of Atlantic Blvd & Andrews Ave.
The purpose of this project is to esthetically enhance the visual aspect of such and prevent vandalism.
For some years Frank has been contemplating some of these eyesore boxes around south Florida thinking of the idea of been able to incorporate some of his work on them later on he started seeing popping up around parts of Broward County. His first attempt at this was contacting the FDOT phone number posted in one of these boxes. However that didn't get him too far. It wasn’t until he came across the call to artists posted by the city of Pompano Beach where he found the avenue to perhaps make this dream come thru.
Without any expectations, if not just hopes, Franks replied to the call to artists submitted his work . As luck will have it shortly after he received an email from the City of Pompano Beach congratulating him as he was one of the selected artists to be part of the Utility Box Wrap Project.
Today, Frank stands proud and full of excitement knowing that his vision, desire and mindset let him to accomplish what he once thought was far to reach. Frank is grateful to the City of Pompano Beach for this humble opportunity. Special thanks to Laura Atria who oversaw this project.
The moral of the story is not to give up, reach for the stars and help others everywhere you can.
We invite you to take a leisure drive around The city of Pompano Beach to take a glance at all of the amazing work currently showcased not only by Frank but by all of the other participating artists.
