One of the works of artistic intermediation of the Municipality of Campina Grande, through the Secretary of Culture, is to approve works of visual arts for urban buildings. Since 2016, the Habite-se program has been carried out together with the Civil Construction sector to approve architectural projects, which are finalized with the placement of screens, sculptures and panels in buildings and condominiums in the city.

The Secretary of Culture, Giseli Sampaio, highlighted the importance of this assessment for the artist from Paraíba to have his works acquired through a special showcase. She recalls that Habite-se is a mandatory program, instituted by Municipal Law No. 5410, of December 23, 2013. From 2016 to the present, about 150 artistic works have already been installed.

“This Law applies to buildings over 2,500 m². The builders or engineers responsible for the projects are advised that each building is relevant to the cultural occupancy. It is a regulation that promotes the artistic milieu of the visual arts area, in addition to making the arts in evidence within these constructions. It is Secult making its contribution to generating opportunities in the creative economy. And it supports an important job market that few people know about,” said Giseli.

Secult will soon be calling for visual artists to create their digital portfolios. “We are going to prepare a permanent digital exhibition of the artists’ works, so that when the construction requester makes the Habite-se, he can comfortably and safely choose the artist from Paraíba that he likes the most”, completed the inspector of the Habite-se of Secult, Daniel Figueiredo.

He emphasized that identification and documentation guarantee security in the process. “In technical language, the Habite-se is also known as the Work Completion Notice. In more popular language, it is a certificate issued by the City Hall, stating that the property is fit to be inhabited, within the municipal requirements, specifically with the approval of Secult in the implementation of the works”, he explained.

The process begins with an inspection of the property to make sure that the entire construction project was followed and that the place is safe to house residents. The Secretary of Works (Secob) initiates it, through an electronic process. Then, if the area is greater than 2,500 m², there is a field in the request that is marked with a request to the Secretary of Culture.

The necessary documents are issued by Secob and Secult. The canvas, sculpture, statue or any other work of art has to be in harmony with the size of the space where it will be installed. Finally, the applicant himself forwards the request to Secult to analyze the process and schedule the inspector to visit the approval or adjustments.

Works of art

Three of the dozen works of art installed in the buildings in the last year are a statue, a canvas and a panel. At Campina Residence Clube, in the Ligeiro district, there is a one-meter-high replica of the cotton plant at the Monumento aos Pioneiros, in Açude Velho.

The oil on canvas by the artist Carmem Sheyla is in the Residencial Castelo da Prata building. The graffiti panel by artist Jed also represents the pioneers of Campina and is in Residencial Belagio, at Bodocongó 3.
