Public Art Call: Princess Street Sidewalk Public Art Project, City of Kingston
Due: Friday, May 15, 2020 at 3:00 pm EST
The City of Kingston invites professional artists and artist teams residing in Canada to respond to a Request for Supplier Qualifications (RFSQ) for eligibility to design, fabricate and install a permanent public artwork along the Princess Street sidewalk at Division Street in downtown Kingston. The Princess Street Sidewalk Public Art Project is part of Phase I of the Hub Project which seeks to create art interventions in the public realm and respond to the desire for community gathering spaces and interactions. Learn more about the Hub Project by visiting the project page.
A jury will select three shortlisted artist or artist teams who will then be invited to respond to a Request for Proposal (RFP) to create an artwork that considers and responds to the area’s counterculture history, architecture, and reflect the energy of the dynamic social scene for which “The Hub” is known.
See the full call for submissions on the City of Kingston’s Biddingo page.
Applicants wishing to access the RFSQ must register with Biddingo. This is a free and easy three step process. When registering please select 10010 Art Objects, Equipment and Supplies as your category, fill in the required information and submit your application. If you are already registered as a vendor on Biddingo, simply log in to access the full RFSQ.
