Brief Description

The City of Niagara Falls invites artists and artist teams with established public art experience to submit their credentials, examples of prior experience and a preliminary vision for the development and execution of a site-specific, permanent, outdoor art installation as part of the Niagara Falls Exchange Project. This is a national two phase process for Professional Artists. As per the Canada Council’s guidelines, a professional artist is defined as someone who has specialized artistic training (not necessarily in academic institutions); is recognized as a professional by their peers (artists working in the same artistic tradition); has a history of public exhibitions; and has produced an independent body of work. A specially convened independent Selection Panel, composed of visual arts professionals and community representatives has been established for this competition. The all-inclusive budget for this project is $90,000 CAD
