The following information is excerpted from a call for proposals issued by the City of Vancouver.
The City of Vancouver invites proposals from professional arts organizations that are currently working on new public art projects or need to boost capacity to commission new artworks for existing projects that can be completed by end of 2018.
As part of the City of Vancouver’s Public Art Boost (view council report), a special fund allocated by City Council for 2016-18, funding is available for significant public art projects taking place over the next two years. This funding, which complements the expansion of the Public Art Community Grant program, is intended for professional arts organizations that are producing art in public places.
The Public Art Boost is intended to enable exceptional projects to have a significant impact, through increasing the number of artist commissions, expanding to multiple locations, reaching out to diverse audiences from across the city, or otherwise increasing the capacity or impact of the project.
