2 St. Clair W Lobby

Slate Asset Management is seeking proposals for a rotating public art gallery/exhibit that will animate the lobby of 2 St. Clair West in the Yonge + St. Clair community. Slate welcomes fine artists, photographers, visual artists, sculptors, mixed-medium artists and others to submit proposals of all mediums. Slate is seeking medium to large-scale pieces to be displayed on two walls in the lobby. Slate’s rotating art program will occur two times a year.

Slate will select one artist to exhibit their work (2 pieces or option to do multiple smaller pieces on Wall 2 if requested) in the lobby of 2 St. Clair West from June 2019 – December 2019 (6-month period).

Artists will receive a $3,000 grant (includes the cost of supplies/materials) to support their pieces and framing. *If you are submitting existing pieces, the grant is still valid. A brief artist bio will be displayed with the works.


  • Pieces must fill both walls appropriately
  • Wall 1: 40×60 inches; Wall 2: 16.5 x 10.1 ft
  • Pieces can be exhibited with option for sale at the end of the term
