Call for Submissions – Hoarding Artwork
Aerosol/Painted Mural for the Exterior of a Construction Site in Regent Park

The Daniels Corporation (Daniels) and project partner, invites artists or artist teams to submit proposals in consideration for a public art installation to be displayed around the perimeter of a construction site in Regent Park. The submission process will involve consulting with staff members from Daniels and partners on the design and fabrication of the work to arrive at a final concept.

There are 3 stages to the proposal process (outlined below).

For Daniels and project partners, each new home community is a work of art. From conception through to completion, every Daniels-built community is designed to enhance its surroundings, the community and to make a statement about its unique character.

The proposed art installation project includes an aerosol/paint mural to be applied to construction hoarding in Phase 3 of the Regent Park revitalization. The hoarding, surrounding an upcoming high-rise project, will be located north- west of the intersection at Shuter Street and River Street. The proposed mural will have exposure on both streets. One artist (or artist team) will be chosen for the project.

The mural will be beneath promotional information about the associated project and complement the designs of the marketing messages. The artwork portion of the hoarding will be approximately (440 linear ft. of 8ft. high plywood fencing).

The desired theme for the mural includes an artistic interpretation of the celebration of the evolution (grow or progression) of a person or groups of people within their community, household and themselves.

We encourage submissions that allow for foot traffic engagement and include interactive components within the art using artistic elements that would compel foot traffic to stop and connect with the art (i.e. standing silhouette).

In addition, the desired theme should not only relate to standard understandings of evolution, but how individuals and groups from all walks of life are able to grow, create, change and work together over various stages of life.

Stage 1 – Request for Proposals
After the proposals have been received, Daniels and partners will assess proposals and shortlist artists or artist teams to proceed to the second stage of the process.

Stage 2 – Selection Process
Shortlisted artists will be contacted and consult with representatives from Daniels and partners to further discuss their design for the artwork.

Stage 3 – Production
The winning proposal selected by the review committee will be approved at the within two weeks of the submission deadline. Production of the artwork will commence shortly after approval and will be completed within an agreed upon timeline.
