Burlinton City Hall civic square

The City of Burlington is looking for an artist to liven up the plaza area of the new Skyway Community Centre currently under construction.

Located in the southeast corner of the city, the competition is open to all Canadian and international professional artists and/or artist-led teams.

A professional artist is an individual who has specialized skills and/or training in his/her artistic discipline (not necessarily in academic institutions), has a history of public presentation and is critically recognized as an artist.

An artwork proposal is not requested at this time. This is a two-phase process.

In Phase One, applicants will be reviewed on the basis of artistic merit of past work, professional qualifications and experience.

In Phase Two, short-listed artists will be required to submit a preliminary artwork concept proposal that will be displayed for public comment and jury review.

Artists selected for the short-list will be provided with a full Request for Proposals outlining detailed artwork specifications prior to developing their proposals. Short-listed artists will be paid an artist fee of $1,500 to develop their proposals.

For more information, visit the city webpage. You can contact Kim Selman via email at [email protected] or by calling 905-515-9334 if you need help accessing the system.

The application deadline is Friday March 10.
