New Public Art opportunity -Georgia Street Entrance to Stanley Park. Vancouver (Canada)

This call for expressions of interest by the City of Vancouver's Olympic and Paralympic Public Art Program seeks artists for a significant public art commission at the west end of Georgia Street at the entrance to Stanley Park in Vancouver, British Columbia. This commission is a once in a generation opportunity to provide Vancouver with a signature artwork that will serve as an enduring legacy of the 2010 Olympic and Paralympic Games.

Stanley Park is 400 hectares of largely coniferous forest almost surrounded by sea at the western edge of the downtown district. It is the city's oldest and most famous park with a seawall traversed daily by thousands of cyclists and pedestrians. Georgia Street is the city's main east/west arterial route through to the heart of downtown Vancouver.
Given the prominence of the site and the significance of its many meanings, the City is seeking an experienced artist or artist team to create artwork equal to the site and the budget available.

Budget: $750,000

Deadline for Submissions: 4:00 pm Monday, November 17, 2008

Eligibility: This call is open to all professional artists and artist teams.
