Call for Proposals
Artist Design for Park Sculpture
Burnet Park
Town of Oakville

Deadline: October 30, 2018 Midnight. EST
Artist Fee: $4,000 CAD (maximum)

The Town of Oakville invites professional and emerging artists to submit proposals to design a public artwork at Burnet Park to commemorate Oakville’s early Black history.

The final artwork will be a site specific sculpture that incorporates local lake stones. The work will be fabricated and installed by Town staff in a flat green park area approximately 7 x 7 metres.

Eligible artists will be emerging and/or professional Canadian artists with outdoor, installation or public art experience. This call is open to national artists, however preference will be given to artists living within the Greater Toronto Area community. Artists with demonstrated connections to Oakville’s Black history will be given priority.

Burnet Park is located at the corner of Kerr and Burnet Streets. The town has recovered lake stones from the foundation of a local property with historic associations to Oakville’s early Black history. These lake stones are to be integrated into the final artwork.

Proposals will be assessed based on artistic merit, relevance of the proposed artwork to the site and demonstrated capacity to complete the project.
