Join the City of Fort Pierce at 4 p.m. on Oct. 24, as the first beautification project in the Peacock Arts District is unveiled. The artists who made this happen will be recognized. The ceremony will take place outside at the corner of South 7th Street and Orange Avenue.
The Painted Pot Program is the first beautification project to be completed in the Peacock Arts District, in partnership with Keep Fort Pierce Beautiful, Fort Pierce Lions Club and many local artists.
Fifteen terracotta pots were purchased by the City to line Orange Avenue with Southern Red Cedars. To take it one step further, more than a dozen local artists painted each pot with vibrant colors that capture the reinvigorated feeling of the district, infusing color and life into the corridor. Please join the City of Fort Pierce and community members in honoring these artists who donated their time, talent and materials to help beautify Fort Pierce.
Located west of US 1, along Orange Avenue, the Peacock Arts District or “The PAD” concept was generated by the community during a public meeting and the area is now being branded and with its own unique identity and culture.
Many beautification projects are currently underway including enhanced lighting, street pole banners and more.
