Deadline: August 31
Call for Expressions of Interest (Public Art) – Bear Creek Athletics Centre, Surrey, BC
Project budget: $200,000. The City of Surrey invites Expressions of Interest (EOI) from professional artists or artist teams to create a large-scale artwork on the East Elevation of the future Bear Creek Athletics Centre. The East Elevation of the grandstand is what visitors will first see upon entering the park. This large expanse has four sheer walls each measuring 5.5m wide x 6.1m high. These walls will be the site of a large-scale artwork that welcomes people to the athletics centre and helps integrate the building into the natural surround of the park itself. An artwork is envisioned that welcomes visitors to the park and grandstand while maintaining an inviting atmosphere that residents feel comfortable playing, exercising, and gathering around. Proposals should integrate the building with the natural elements of the park and carry a unified visual language across all walls to create a large muti-part artwork. This call is open to all professional artists and artist teams.
