The goal of this public art project is to create something that demonstrates the museum’s current relevance while respecting its commitment to preserving the community’s stories and artifacts.

Proposals will be reviewed by the city’s Public Art Committee, in consultation with the museum and the Uptown Village Association. Once a final proposal is selected, the artwork must be completed and installed within six months.

The project’s budget is set at a maximum of $30,000, which would include artist’s fees, engineering fees, labor and materials, documentation and transportation to the site. The city will be responsible for site preparation and installation of the artwork, in consultation with the artist(s).

“We are excited to be releasing the first call for artist’s submissions for Vancouver’s new public art program,” said Public Art Committee Chair Lee Rafferty. “Public art enriches our social and physical environment and helps create a unique identify for our community.”

The Call for Submissions for this public art project is available online at www.cityofvancouver.us/PublicArtCommittee.
