You will find public art in many places in our community: in galleries, on beaches, on street corners and in public buildings. Art is part of our community’s identity.
With over 100 pieces in our Public Art Inventory, below are some highlights from the collection.

Call to Artists
Municipal Hall Public Art Project
The District would like to create a unique and beautiful space located outside the main entrance of the newly-completed Municipal Hall with public art and is looking for the artist who will complete this work. A call to artists has been issued to award a commission to design and integrate a site-specific artwork that reflects the diversity, location and purpose of the Municipal Hall in the community.
The District is committed to integrating public art into the planning and design of its civic buildings. This not only creates an inviting space, but also increases our awareness of art and culture in the community and maintains the District’s commitment to invest in the arts.
To apply, visit bcbid.gov.bc.ca and search for opportunities with the District of West Vancouver.
Deadline for submissions is Thursday, September 27, 2018, at 2 p.m.
