  • Part of the mission of the Martin County Art in Public Places program (AIPP) is to create a high-quality public realm in a manner that is visible and accessible to the public. The Martin Murals program is the vehicle that can inspire artists to design and paint murals on public and private properties throughout Martin County. The National Endowment for the Arts says it best “Creative placemaking animates public and private spaces, rejuvenates structures and streetscapes, improves local business viability and public safety, and brings diverse people together to celebrate, inspire, and be inspired.” Public art is also tied to positive tourism goals, instills a sense of civic pride, boosts economic growth, and inspires investment in our community.
    To encourage public/private partnerships, the maximum funding amount through AIPP is $7,500 per project.

    Swamp Ape Review is a national online literary journal founded and produced by the MFA in creative writing students at Florida Atlantic University.

    The Swamp Ape is a legend that reflects Florida—its mythology, its weirdness—as well as the human desire to create a narrative around that which we can’t explain. Submissions to the Swamp should defy form to the extent that the piece’s creator might be unsure of where it belongs. Across all genres, we encourage pieces with a hybrid or non-traditional nature—works that subvert our expectations of both content and form and unsettle our assumptions of what is possible.

  • Deadline to Apply: Ongoing
    MartinArts invites artists in all media to apply for consideration to exhibit in upcoming exhibitions held at the Court House Cultural Center in downtown Stuart, FL. Applications are accepted year round and reviewed on a rolling basis.
