Call to Indigenous Artists: Public Artwork for Town of Whitby Sports Complex
STEPS Public Art
The Town of Whitby is seeking to commission a landmark public artwork from a professional Indigenous artist or artist team from currently called Canada to be placed within and adjacent to the forthcoming Whitby Sports Complex. This major public art project builds on the Town of Whitby’s commitment to create awareness of the Indigenous cultures, peoples and heritages.
The Town of Whitby is seeking expressions of interest and qualifications which will see an Indigenous artist/artist team selected through an open, two-stage process, with a total budget of approximately $150,000 CAD. The project budget includes all costs directly associated with the artwork: including fees for design, fabrication, shipping, installation, engineering and professional services, insurance, permits, travel and other incidental and production expenses.
Up to three (3) artists or artist teams will be shortlisted and paid $3000 CAD each to create detailed proposals. Community engagement will be a requirement for the selected artist/artist team.
