CLEARWATER, Fla. — Calling all artists! Sunsets at Pier 60 Society Inc. is looking for an artist to create a large-scale sculpture to help promote recycling during the 2020 Pier 60 Sugar Sand Festival.

According to the St. Pete Arts Alliance, the sculpture "will be a functioning piece of art that will hold empty water and soda bottles to showcase recycling efforts on the beach during the 17-day event," which will be held April 10 through April 26, 2020.

The artist, or team of artists, selected to create the original work of art will have a $4,000 budget to work with, but must create the piece to withstand the elements on the beach.
