West Harbour – James Street Plaza Public Art Project



The Hamilton Waterfront Trust / City of Hamilton is seeking professional Artists or Artist-Led Teams to create a permanent Public Art work(s) to be located along the new James Street Plaza to be constructed as part of Hamilton’s West Harbour Redevelopment of Pier 5, 6 & 7.

The public art work should be a beacon – visible along James Street North – marking the entrance to the West Harbour and recalling an aspect of the city’s historic connection with water; natural, recreational and industrial (or the interrelation of these elements). The work should celebrate reconnection to the water’s edge being advanced currently through the West Harbour development.

Artists will be selected by a citizen Jury through a two-stage process involving a written statement of approach and qualifications followed by submission of a detailed proposal by selected Artists.

Award: $315,000
Short-listed applicants completing a Stage Two submission will receive $2,500.

Submission Deadline: Thursday, June 27, 2019 at 4:00 PM (EST)

Artist Information Meeting:
Tuesday, June 4, 2019, 6 PM
Hamilton Waterfront Centre, 57 Discovery Dr., Hamilton, ON L8L 8K4

Artists are invited to view a presentation on the adjudication process and submission requirements.

This is not a mandatory meeting.
