Brief Description

It’s a rare chance for local artists to submit proposals to beautify a highly visible retaining wall at the base of Chilliwack Mountain. “This private project initiative is for the permanent surface modification of the 345-foot long wall that borders a City of Chilliwack community trail,” according to the call for proposals. The art commission opportunity is coming from LSC Precast, a company owned by Brian Janssens and Sylvie Roussel-Janssens. Project proposals by artists, or teams of artists, are now being sought until June 1. They’re offering $5,000 (Canadian Dollars) to the artist(s) chosen to modify the retaining wall on the southern edge of the Lickman Road property. The location is the interface point where public and private space meet. The LSC property at 8285A-Lickman Road is bordered by a 1.8k public trail, at the western entrance, commonly known as the Heppner Ditch trail.
