Applications Open: North Central BRT Shelter Artwork

Applications are open and full guidelines have been released for the North Central BRT Shelter Artwork 2023.

Calgary Arts Development is partnering with The City of Calgary’s Bus Rapid Transit program to add artworks to new bus rapid transit shelters. We welcome artists who live, work or have a connection to north central Calgary, specifically along the transit line from Centre Street through Harvest Hills Boulevard North to submit digital images of existing, original 2D artwork that demonstrates how being a part of a community impacts your everyday life through shared values, trust and care.

Selected artworks will be enlarged and printed onto the glass of 16 bus shelters for the North Central Bus Rapid Transit (BRT) project. Up to 32 images may be selected from this call.

This opportunity is open to anyone who self-identifies as an artist. Artists working in any two-dimensional medium are encouraged to apply (e.g., painting, drawing, printmaking, graphic design, illustration, fibre, photography, digital art, etc.).

Artists will be paid $1,750 per selected image; this amount is above current CARFAC rates for the permanent reproduction of artworks.
