Artist Calls

  • Computer rendering of an overpass with a pedestrian and cyclist on one side of a barrier and cars on the other side.

    20 Avenue Overpass

    With the threat of rising sea levels and the increasing frequency of forest fires and heatwaves, the need for environmental awareness and protection is greater than ever.  Work with the City of Surrey to create awareness of the importance of environmental stewardship through public art. 

    The City of Surrey is inviting Expressions of Interest for a public artwork on the future 20 Avenue Overpass over Hwy 99. The overpass will connect the existing residential area west of the highway with a new commercial and light industrial zone to the east.  The artwork design will be laser-cut into a series of stainless-steel panels, powder coated and affixed to the bridge railings.  The artwork will act as a gateway feature between the two zones.

    Deadline: January 13, 2023

  • White blank fabric banners attached to a black pole against a cloudy blue sky.

    2023 Public Art Street Banners

    Every year, the City of Surrey Public Art Program commissions artwork to be displayed on approximately 100 street poles near significant cultural destinations in Surrey.  These artist-designed street banners add colour and vibrancy to streets throughout the City.  They can also be opportunities to shine light on the issues affecting Surrey residents.

    The City of Surrey is inviting proposals for an artist to create a design that inspires collaboration and collective action to be part of the Public Art Banner initiative for 2023. 

    Deadline: January 6, 2023
