Request for Expressions of Interest
Royal Botanical Gardens, The Reflecting Pools

Deadline: Friday April 6, 2018
Budget: $70,000 CAD (maximum)

About:
The Dan Lawrie International Sculpture Collection (DLISC) invites professional artists to submit Expressions of Interest to create a permanent public artwork to be installed in the Reflecting Pool located in the Royal Botanical Gardens (RBG). The artwork will act as a signature feature to Hendrie Park, including the newly rejuvenated Rose Garden. The Reflecting Pools offer a number of locations in which the artwork may be installed. Shortlisted artists may propose artwork to be located in one or both of the pools. The artwork should complement the existing landscaping and architecture of the RBG grounds. The Royal Botanical Gardens is located at the western tip of Lake Ontario and includes four distinct formal gardens contained with 1,100 hectares of nature reserve nestled into the slopes of Niagara Escarpment World Biosphere Reserve.

Submissions:
Please note - this is a Request for Expression of Interest. Artwork proposals are not requested at this time. A maximum of three artists will be short-listed to develop artwork concept proposals. Short-listed artists will be paid an honorarium of $1,000 (CAD). The budget for this project is $70,000 inclusive (CAD), including all tax, artist fees, fabrication, transportation, and installation of the artwork.

Deadline: 4:00pm on Friday April 6, 2018
