Request for Expressions of Interest
Public Art Call for the Maple Ridge Leisure Centre, BC

Deadline: April 12, 2018
Budget: $60,000 CAD

Background Summary:
Canadian artists and artist teams are invited to submit an Expression of Interest (RFEI-PL18-4) to create a new original permanent public artwork to enhance the customer and visitor experience at the Maple Ridge Leisure Centre (BC), our destination community centre. For over 35 years, the Leisure Centre has been a community gathering place and offers a welcoming and inclusive environment where all ages and abilities have the opportunity to participate in recreational and social activities. The facility includes an aquatics area with 2-25 metre lap pools, hot pool, sauna, steam rooms, a waterslide and the first leisure pool in Canada when built in 1981. We have an opportunity to partially renovate and upgrade the pool, lobby and change room areas which provides a chance to integrate new public art into this well used public facility (over 400,000 visits/year) that celebrates health and wellness, intergenerational active living, sport and Indigenous place names.

Submissions:
This competition is a two stage process with the first stage being a Request for Expression of Interest. An EOI Information Meeting is available on March 16 at 3pm at City Hall (RSVP by emailing submissions@mapleridge.ca). Artists will need to address how they will incorporate community consultation and public engagement as part of their design concept and refinement process. A maximum of three artists will be short-listed to develop artwork concept proposals in Stage 2. Short-listed artists in the second stage will be paid an honorarium of $600 (CAD) for the concept and brief presentation (in person or online). In addition, artists may propose artwork to be located in one, two or all three of the locations identified but must remain within the budget. The budget for this project is $60,000 inclusive (CAD), including all tax, artist fees, fabrication, transportation, and installation of the artwork.

The selection panel will make a decision and award the commission by May 2018. The approved concept will be expected to be installed by January/February 2019 (pending coordination with the construction schedule).

Deadline: April 12, 2018 at 2:00pm PST
