The Oakville Public Library (OPL) invites artists to submit Expressions of Interest (EOI) to create a permanent indoor public artwork for the children’s area and outdoor patio area of the Glen Abbey Branch. This competition is open to professional Canadian artists and artist-led teams.
An artwork proposal is not required at this time. This is a two-stage process.
During stage one of the competition, applicants will be reviewed on the basis of the merit of past work, professional qualifications and experience. Refer to submission details in the EOI document. In stage two shortlisted artists will be required to submit an artwork concept proposal and model. Short listed artists will be paid an artist fee of $1500 to develop their proposals. The selected artist will then enter a contract with the Oakville Public Library for the artwork creation and installation phase of the project. The successful artist will have a maximum budget of $50,000 to create the artwork.
