Public Art Opportunity: Rain Garden, Fenelon Falls


Rain Garden (looking north east), Fenelon Falls, Ontario


The Fenelon Arts Committee (FAC) invites expressions of interest from artists or teams of artists to design and install two sculptures to be mounted on large limestone bases at the Rain Garden, south of Maryboro Lodge: The Fenelon Museum. This opportunity is open to artists and artist teams with a connection to the Kawarthas.

The works should provide an engaging visual art aesthetic that is visible from all perspectives. The works should consider the context and character of the area: as the Oak Street Conservation District, the Indigenous use of the location as a portage and gathering place, the historical development of Fenelon Falls, or the natural heritage of the region and waterway. The budget for each sculpture is up to $25,000. All proposals must be inclusive of total costs.
