Deadline: March 17, 2024 11:59 p.m. EST via online application
Artist Fee: $800 for each artwork selected (includes HST)

The Town of Oakville invites local artists to submit proposals for traffic signal cabinet wraps at various intersections in Oakville. Artwork can be created in any medium but, if selected, must be provided as high-resolution digital files suitable for large-format printing. The final artwork will be a digital file printed onto vinyl media that will wrap around a traffic signal cabinet. The selected proposals will be visually engaging and reflect the local community. Artists of all experience levels are encouraged to submit proposals.

The new traffic signal cabinet wraps will be featured as part of the 2024 Culture Days Festival (September 20 to October 13), a national celebration of arts and culture. In the spirit of the Culture Days festival, submitted artworks should be vibrant, positive works that celebrate the local community by drawing inspiration from arts, culture and nature.

Artists may create work specifically for this call or may reformat existing work. The town will be responsible for the fabrication and installation of the vinyl media.

This call is open to artists of any experience level (emerging, mid-career and established) living in the Greater Toronto and Hamilton Area. Artists who demonstrate connections to Oakville will be given priority.

Proposals will be assessed based on artistic merit, adaptability of proposed artwork to the traffic cabinet structure, and demonstrated capacity to complete the project.

Artists must be 18 years of age and older.
