welcome - Edmonton Arts Council

The Edmonton Arts Council is committed to equity in all aspects of its work, and invites proposals from all potentially interested artists. We thank all artists for contributing their time and professional work for their initial concept proposal submissions.

Call to Edmonton Artists :: Ivor Dent Sports Park (RFP)

The Ivor Dent Sports Park public art competition, open to professional Artists residing in Edmonton and surrounding area, is 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 Public Art Program, on behalf of the City of Edmonton, seeks an artist or artist team to create a series of artistic elements to be attached to light poles lining the park entrance.

This artwork opportunity is highly visible and will lend a welcoming, celebratory, vibrant, and visually stimulating element to the park entrance. As the first thing seen by visitors, the artwork will lead them in, and pique their interest. No theme is directly proposed; artwork celebrating the spirit of inclusivity inherent in sports communities may be considered.

$24,000.00 CAD (maximum, all inclusive)

Deadline for Submissions:
4:30 pm on Friday, April 28, 2017
