Brief Description

Canadian artists and artist teams are invited to submit an Expression of Interest (RFEI-PL18-4) to create a new original permanent public artwork to enhance the customer and visitor experience at the Maple Ridge Leisure Centre (BC), our destination community centre. For over 35 years, the Leisure Centre has been a community gathering place and offers a welcoming and inclusive environment where all ages and abilities have the opportunity to participate in recreational and social activities. The facility includes an aquatics area with 2-25 metre lap pools, hot pool, sauna, steam rooms, a waterslide and the first leisure pool in Canada when built in 1981. We have an opportunity to partially renovate and upgrade the pool, lobby and change room areas which provides a chance to integrate new public art into this well used public facility (over 400,000 visits/year) that celebrates health and wellness, intergenerational active living, sport and Indigenous place names. BUDGET IS $60,000 CAD
