Call for Artists: Coronation Recreation Centre Public Art Project

The following public art competition is held in accordance with the City of Edmonton policy “Percent for Art to Provide and Encourage Art in Public Areas” (C458C).

The Coronation Recreation Centre public art competition is open to local and national professional artists and artist teams/collectives who reside in Canada. Artists with a connection to this area of Edmonton are encouraged to apply. The successful artist(s) will be commissioned based upon a portfolio review and interview process.

Coronation Recreation Centre will be a community and social hub for central-north Edmonton that meets the leisure, health and wellness needs of families, youth, adults, and seniors.  

Exterior Entry Plaza Location (Small scale freestanding sculptures)
Freestanding sculptures will be placed throughout the large exterior entrance plaza. Mediums might include but are not limited to bronzes, kinetic sculpture, and multiples. Large scale artworks are not appropriate for the exterior plaza due to the existing architecture in the adjacent area. Artworks must be sensitive of the overall architectural skyline already present in Coronation Park.

Budget: $420,000 CAD (maximum, all inclusive)

Submission Deadline: Friday, November 21, 2022, at 11:59pm MST
