The City of Ottawa invites visual artists, no matter their medium, to submit an Expression of Interest to participate in a mentorship opportunity to design, fabricate and install an artist-designed public bench.
Two artists will be selected to design benches that will be installed on the western side of the Rideau Canal, between the Rideau Canal and the re-landscaped wetland area. One bench will be commissioned specifically to an Algonquin artist or artist team. Theses benches should help create a unique sense of place. This is a two-stage open competition held in accordance with the City of Ottawa Public Art Policy.
Deadline: February 28, 2018 at 4 pm EST
