Brief Description

The public art opportunity is to design digital media artworks at various spaces throughout three (3) station sites along the Trillium Line: Gladstone, South Keys and Bowesville. This Request for Artist Team Qualifications is the first of a two-stage competitive process to identify artists’ teams to be considered to submit to the request for a proposal (RFP). Artists’ teams who have been shortlisted and will be invited to submit a proposal to the selection committee July 2019. The O-Train Public Art Program offers a platform for artists’ teams to create public art that will position Ottawa as a leading city of innovative and engaging contemporary art in light rail projects. Goal is to create a cohesive narrative between and along the transit lines, regions and geography of the city and enhance the transit rider experience. The O-Train Public Art Program is made possible due to the City of Ottawa’s Public Art Policy which designates 1% of capital project budgets for public art.
