Call for Submissions: Downtown Passageway Public Art Project, Collingwood

Call for Artists: Collingwood, Ontario, Downtown Passageway Public Art Project

The Collingwood, Ontario Downtown Business Improvement Association (BIA) is seeking Canada-based artists (including artist teams) to submit their credentials and interest to the first stage of a project for public artwork to be installed in Collingwood’s Downtown in 2023.

This public art will be a placemaking piece that engages the community and visitors in the Downtown core and neighbourhood, serves as a memorable and welcoming landmark, and evokes a sense of place and source of pride for the community.

The public artwork will be selected through an open, two-stage process. Up to three candidates will be invited by a Selection Team to advance as finalists and present a proposal with an amount of $2500 paid for their participation.

The total artwork budget is $200,000 and includes all fees to consult, collaborate, design, fabricate, transport, install the artwork as well as insurance, travel and other incidental expenses.

Submissions are due Wednesday, November 30, 4:00 p.m.
