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

Submission Deadline: April 22, 2024
Design Fee: $250,000

The City of Surrey invites Expressions of Interest (EOI) from professional artists or artist teams to create an artwork or series of artworks for the plaza 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 located on 64 Ave east of Bill Reid Millenium Amphitheatre and north of the Cloverdale Fairgrounds.

The plaza has a primary walkway leading to the main entrance flanked by long benches and triangular planter boxes. An artwork or series of works are envisioned to animate this walkway and create a welcoming atmosphere to sit in or pass through. The artwork should feel integrated and connected with the landscaping.

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

Deadline for application is April 22, 2024
