Call to Edmonton Artists :: #YEGCANVAS 2017: A Citywide Billboard and LRT Station-Based Art Exhibition 

The Edmonton Arts Council (EAC) and Pattison Outdoor Advertising present #YEGCANVAS 2017. This highly visible, high-profile transitory public art initiative turns the city of Edmonton into an urban gallery exhibiting works by Edmonton-area emerging, Indigenous, and multicultural artists, craftspeople, and artisans. #YEGCANVAS is an entry point for artists who have had little opportunity to participate in public art or exhibit in the Edmonton area. 

#YEGCANVAS 2017: A Citywide Billboard and LRT Station-Based Art Exhibition will feature 45 works of art displayed on billboards and LRT station transit posters throughout the City of Edmonton. Up to 45 artists will be selected for this exhibition, and their artwork will be shown on 10 billboards and 15 LRT station transit posters located throughout Edmonton. #YEGCANVAS 2017 will run from October 30, 2017 to April 15, 2018. 

Artists may submit up to three suitable existing artworks, or new work created for consideration. All works must be original to the artist. 

Budget:
$500 CAD (maximum, all inclusive) per image - artists may submit up to three artworks.
 
Deadline for Submissions:
4:30 pm on Friday, July 28, 2017

Installation:
Rotating display on 10 billboards and 15 LRT station posters starting October 30, 2017 ending April 15, 2018.

Call for Applicants :: Edmonton Arts Council Public Art Selection Committee Roster

The Edmonton Arts Council (EAC), on behalf of the City of Edmonton, requests applications from Edmonton-based arts professionals and arts-oriented community members to be included on our Public Art Selection Committee roster. Selection Committees reflect the full diversity of the City of Edmonton, including members of the city's Indigenous and culturally diverse communities, and artists at all career levels.

Public Art Selection Committees play a vital role in the Public Art commissioning process. Committee members serve as evaluators, providing recommendations for each public artwork commissioned through the City of Edmonton Policy C458B - "Percent for Art to Provide and Encourage Art in Public Areas".

Many submissions are reviewed each year. The EAC attempts to engage a wide spectrum of artists and community in this process. Selection Committees typically review all submitted artist proposals and project descriptions, as well as support material for suitability, relevance, and quality
