Minoru Complex Entries and Arrivals Artwork

Minoru Complex Entries and Arrivals Artwork

The City of Richmond Public Art Program seeks an artist or artist team to create an artwork for the entrance and arrivals zone of the new Minoru Complex. The artwork may be a single piece, or a series of sequential pieces to create a sense of journey and present a unique narrative for multiple entry and arrivals zones.

The artwork(s) may also address wayfinding and help to express a visual connection for visitors and staff. Artists are encouraged to consider and respond to Richmond’s island location and its connection to water. However, literal use of water is not proposed due to environmental, safety and maintenance concerns.

This is a two-stage open artist call. Following review by the selection panel of the submitted artists’ statements of interest and conceptual proposals, up to five artists will be shortlisted and invited to develop their concept proposals and attend an interview. An honorarium of $2,000 will be paid to each of the shortlisted artists or artist teams.

Budget: $200,000 CAD
Eligibility: Open to professional artists and artist teams residing in Canada
Deadline: Friday, July 15, 2016, at 4:00pm
Installation: Fall 2017
