Public Art Opportunity

The City of Kelowna, through its Public Art Program, announces the commissioning of a site-specific artwork to be located at the Kelowna Community Health & Services Centre (KCHSC) within Kelowna’s downtown. The commission is a partnership between the City of Kelowna, Bentall Kennedy (Canada) and B.C. Interior Health.

Interior Health’s vision is ‘every person matters’. This commission presents an opportunity to articulate, in an artistic manner, the relationship between health and the well-being of individuals and their communities. No theme or material for the artwork has been determined and it can be either abstract or figurative. Artists are encouraged to explore their own ideas and thoughts in response to this brief.
