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 few projects.  

Currently, they are in the process of accepting applications so that local artists could have an extraordinary volunteer opportunity to apply to paint a shark statue or a fire hydrant.  The artists must reside in Volusia County and be at least sixteen years old.  They have selected approved locations around the City that house the fire hydrants that can be painted.  There are currently five locations that display Shark Statues.  These locations were chosen by last year's Task Force.  The current statues will be auctioned/sold during the 2023 Art Fiesta.  The new shark statues will replace the current ones.  Hydrant and Shark Statue location determination will be decided by the Task Force during a future meeting. They are excited about continuing to create a legacy that will add beauty to our charming city.
