Tallahassee’s History and Culture Trail needs art proposals by Dec. 10

A celebration for the extension of FAMU Way from Wahnish Way to Lake Bradford Road was held April 20, 2021.  Art proposals are being accepted for Segment 3 of the History and Culture Trail project, which will focus on honoring stories of African American neighborhoods.

In partnership with the Blueprint Intergovernmental Agency, the Council on Culture & Arts seeks public art proposals by Dec. 10 that celebrate the rich history and culture of the areas surrounding the Capital Cascades Trail and FAMU Way Extension projects.

The Capital Cascades Trail project is designed to provide a multi-faceted, multi-use stormwater and recreation facility and connected trail network. It is separated into physically distinct segments stretching across 4.25 miles of downtown Tallahassee.

The corridor provides increased connectivity between Florida A&M University and Florida State University.
