BREVARD COUNTY, Fla. – Whether it’s the beaches, incredible rocket launches or attractions, the Space Coast is home to some pretty unique things and the tourism office wants someone to paint a mural to show them off.

The Space Coast Office of Tourism is looking for an artist to capture “the essence of the area as a vacation destination, highlighting the ‘Only Here’ experiences, and creating an exciting and welcoming atmosphere.”

“The final project should include elements from the five pillars of tourism on Florida’s Space Coast including Space, Beaches/Surfing, Cruises, Nature/Outdoor activities, and leisure (such as dining, shopping, and visiting attractions.),” the website reads.

Applications are due by Sept. 2 and final selections will be made on Sept. 23.
