The new Science Centre is able to provide the opportunity for an artist to create a site‐specific work of art to be outdoors in a designed parkland area.
The artist selected for this project will have experience in public art, a demonstrated ability to work within timelines and budgets, experience working with a landscape design team and landscape construction companies. An all-‐inclusive budget of $100,000 Canadian** has been allocated for the selected artist to engage in this unique opportunity.
