Artist Call for Fraser Heights Traffic Circle Sculpture

The City of Surrey is inviting Expressions of Interest (EOI) for a public artwork to be placed in a traffic circle at the intersection of 156 Street and 108 Avenue in Fraser Heights. A concrete foundation for the artwork has already been installed slightly off-centre within the traffic circle, on which the artwork will stand. The artwork is to be highly visible, use vertical components, and create interest within the traffic circle while being appropriate for an active intersection.

The project budget is funded by private development contributions, matched by the City of Surrey's Public Art Program.

An information meeting will be held on Wednesday, September 28 from 5pm to 6pm at the Surrey Guildford Library (15105 105 Avenue).

The deadline to submit is November 1 by 4pm.

For details on how to apply and suggested themes, view the information document.

The competition is open to all visual artists currently living in British Columbia (including graphic artists, book designers, illustrators, and art students).

The award for the final design is $2500.

The deadline to submit is October 24 by 4pm. The public announcement of the finalist will be made November 22, 2016.
