Call to artists
The District invites artists or artist teams to design and integrate site-specific public art at Navvy Jack Point Park (at 21st Street) and Weston Park (at 22nd Street) in West Vancouver.
As part of park improvements, an art element will be incorporated into the parks. All proposed art components must be constructed with durable materials, be safe to use and consider long-term maintenance and longevity in the design.
Artists may submit an Expression of Interest for either or both projects.
Deadline: Tuesday, October 12, 2021 at 2 p.m.
