“Farquhar’s Lane Art Installation Project
Deadline: 12 NOON EST on April 1st, 2019.
The request for expressions of interest
Artists and artist teams with established public art experience are invited to submit their credentials, examples of prior experience and a preliminary vision for the development and execution of a site-specific, permanent, outdoor art installation for a public art project to enhance Farquhar’s Lane, Toronto, Ontario, Canada. The vision is to capture the life and ambience of Toronto’s early waterfront with bold design that is engaging and informative.
The project will be conducted in two Phases over two years with a total budget of $320,000. This is a two-stage, open competition for professional artists who can demonstrate past experience in outdoor public mural creation and installation.
Based on the responses to this call for expressions of interest, a Selection Committee will select three (3) artists to develop their design proposals. Each of these artists will be paid a fee of $2,000 (Canadian dollars) to prepare the design proposal. Based on the design proposals the Selection Committee will choose one artist to execute the project. An additional fee of $3,000 will be paid to the winning artist for their final design.
The selection criteria are artistic excellence and demonstrated ability to create and execute a major innovative, engaging public artwork. The competition is open to all qualified artists; eligibility is not limited by geographic or other restrictions.”
