Public Call – City of Port Moody – Ballard Fine Art for Porte Communities

Deadline: June 4

Porte Communities, in partnership with the City of Port Moody, invites Expressions of Interest (EOIs) from professional artists or artist teams to design, fabricate, and install a permanent public artwork along the retaining wall adjacent to the Clyde development. The public art is envisioned as a tiled mural or metal artwork bolted to the wall that will enliven the space and engage the community, and may include 2D or 3D forms within a wide range of approaches and media. The artist selection process is a two-stage open call. Only artists who are shortlisted for the public art opportunity will be required to develop a concept proposal.
