Calls to Western Canadian Artists :: Valley Line LRT ~ Transit Shelter Canopy Sculptures Public Art Projects (5 Calls)

There are five Canopy Sculpture public art calls circulating for the Valley Line LRT Transit Shelter Canopy Sculptures

Artists may apply for one or multiple calls, and should provide a distinct submission package for each call in separate emails.

Submit Visual Documentation only once if it is exactly the same for each submission, and indicate so in your email.

RFP :: Canopy Installation Transit Shelters Public Art Projects (5 Calls)

The Neighbourhood Stop Transit Canopy Installation public art competitions, open to professional artists residing in Western Canada: British Columbia, Alberta, and Saskatchewan are held in accordance with the City of Edmonton policy “Percent for Art to Provide and Encourage Art in Public Areas” (C458C).

The Edmonton Arts Council, on behalf of the City of Edmonton, seeks an artist or artist team to integrate site-specific public art on five (5) Transit Canopy roofs along the new Valley Line.

Each Call represents a highly visible public art opportunity for sculptural installations including, but not limited to, kinetic or static sculptures, and may incorporate light, text, assemblage, sound, etc.

Artwork should reflect the urban character of the community surrounding the stop and will focus on discovery, storytelling and place making. Artwork can be one identifying element, or a series over several canopies.

Hard coated EPS foam sculptures will not be considered. Glass fibre reinforced concrete, painted fibreglass, ceramics, metals, and art glass are possible if treated correctly for permanence.

Emerging and mid-career public artists are encouraged to apply.

Budget (per Call):
$56,000.00 CAD (maximum, all inclusive)

Deadline for Submissions:
4:30 pm on Wednesday, May 31st, 2017

Installation:
Spring 2019
