Request for Proposals: igNIGHT
igNIGHT is a temporary public art exhibition that aims to inspire public art initiatives in ways that engage the interest and imagination of the general public using illuminated artworks at the heart of the exhibition.
The Regional Municipality of Wood Buffalo (RMWB) invites artists to submit proposals to stage temporary, light-based public art in downtown Fort McMurray. The RMWB seeks to capitalize on opportunities to reimagine, transform and energize public spaces by showcasing igNIGHT-art illuminated. This temporary public art event will take place from December 4 to December 13, 2020. Artists are asked to explore potential opportunities for using light to enhance, animate, interact with or re-contextualize natural and/or built environments. Existing artworks that have not been showcased in Fort McMurray will also be considered.
Deadline for submissions: Monday, October 12, 2020 – 2:00 p.m. (MST)
