Project Description

The EAC, on behalf of the City of Edmonton, is seeking a local or national artist/artist team to create an artwork to be installed in a new pedway running under 103A Avenue at 99 Street in downtown Edmonton.

The 103A Avenue pedway corridor will connect the existing pedway at the Churchill LRT Station to the Royal Alberta Museum with a pop-up entrance at the small park in front of the CN Tower.

The selected artist will propose an artwork to be approved by the EAC prior to artwork fabrication and installation. The selected artist is responsible for all aspects of designing and installing their artwork. Mediums must be 2D or low relief such as murals or mosaics. Installation locations can include but are not limited to, the corridor walls, or the acoustic panels on the ceiling.

The selected artist or artist team may conduct research and engage with the surrounding community when developing concepts for the 103A Avenue Pedway Public Art Project. If it is relevant to your process, you may include your preliminary ideas for research and engagement in your submission.
