Youth Council Task Force Artist Submittal Information
The members of the City of New Smyrna Beach Youth Council Task Force have been diligently working on a project. They presented their idea to the City Commission on May 14, 2019. City Commission Meeting May 14 2019 Unfortunately, their meetings are conducted during the school year (January – May) and they were not able to move forward last year due to the pandemic and meeting restrictions.
The great news is, they have resumed their regular meeting schedule. Currently, they are in the process of accepting submissions so that local artists could have an extraordinary volunteer opportunity to apply to paint a shark statue. The artists must reside in Volusia County. They also would like to find places to house the shark statues. The core members (4 of 5) of the task force began serving as members during their sophomore year. They are graduating seniors this year and are excited about creating a legacy that will add beauty to our charming city.
