Brief Description

This is a two-stage, open competition for professional artists born or living in Canada. Public Art Management, on behalf of FCS Development Corp., is issuing this Request for Credentials (RFC) to all professional artists, as the first stage of a two-stage public art competition for The Quad Phase II student residences project on the campus of York University in Toronto, Canada. The 1st part of this call is a Landmark Artwork Commission Opportunity to create a landmark art installation within a significant community open space. This is ideal for an experienced, visionary and reliable artist. The successful candidate will develop a concept that may comprise one of more elements for the “art zone”. The work should engage the public and serve as a community “identifier”. While situated on the York University campus, this location will serve as a community hub, a gathering and socializing space for students, workers, and residents.
