Call for Expressions of Interest: Cloverdale Sport & Ice Complex – Lobby Artwork, City of Surrey

Artist Call (Public Art)
Cloverdale Sport & Ice Complex – Lobby Artwork

Submission Deadline: April 22, 2024
Design Fee: $100,000

The City of Surrey invites Expressions of Interest (EOI) to create two large artworks for the lobby of the Cloverdale Sport & Ice Complex.

The Cloverdale Sport & Ice Complex will provide additional ice in Cloverdale to meet the community’s needs for ice hockey, figure skating, public lessons, skating sessions and dry-floor summer use for sports such as lacrosse and ball hockey. This new facility is on 64 Ave, east of Bill Reid Millenium Amphitheatre and north of the Cloverdale Fairgrounds.

The lobby has two feature walls to display significant artworks. The two walls directly face each other with one above the reception desk and the other above the main entrance/exit. One artwork will welcome users to the facility, while the other will bid them farewell as they leave. The works would also be viewable from the second floor and staircase.

These walls could support 2D forms, such as paintings or large-scale photographs, or relatively light weight low relief sculptures. All approaches will be considered if they meet the weight restrictions outlined in the artist call. Artworks should be related and complement each other in form, aesthetics, or concept.

Eligibility: This call is open to all professional artists and artist teams.

Deadline for application is April 22, 2024

Your expression of interest should contain the following information:

  • Contact Details: Name, address, email and phone number
  • Letter of Intent: Outline you artist approach to this project and initial concept ideas
  • Artist CV: History of past exhibitions, commissions, education and/or relevant experience
  • Bio & Artist Statement: A brief introduction to who you are and what your practice is about
