PUBLIC ART OPPORTUNITY FOR ARTISTS : Half Moon Bay Park | APPEL AUX ARTISTES POUR UN PROJET D'ART PUBLIC : Le parc Half Moon Bay
The City of Ottawa Public Art Program presents a PUBLIC ART OPPORTUNITY FOR ARTISTS: Half Moon Bay Park
The City of Ottawa Public Art Program invites artists to apply to develop, design, and implement a public art commission for the Half Moon Bay Park.
Half Moon Bay Park located at Greenbank and Cambrian in Barrhaven will be the largest park in the neighbourhood primarily servicing the area south of the Jock River. A celestial theme is dominantly featured in the parks design complimented by the play structure selection and paving pattern which depicts the lunar cycle.
In accordance with the Percent for Art Policy the City of Ottawa is accepting proposals for integrated public artwork for the Half Moon Bay Park construction project. The artwork is intended to reinforce the areas’ unique sense of place and celebrate public art as practiced on the highest level of artistic creativity and imagination. Artists are required to respond to this request for proposals with a thematic or conceptual focus in keeping with the celestial theme of the park. A rendering/sketch of the proposed concept is a requirement for the first stage of this competition.
The total budget for this commission is $65,000 plus HST. The commission budget must include all costs required to design, fabricate and install the project.
Submissions must be received by mail or by hand no later than Wednesday February 29, 2012 at 3:30
An information meeting will be held at 172 Guigues Avenue, Routhier Community Centre in the first floor Lounge on Wednesday February 1, 5:30-6:30 p.m.
The City of Ottawa’s website is currently under construction.
