The Visual Arts Centre of Clarington (VAC) invites practicing Ontario-based artists to submit their applications for Toyota Motor Corporation’s commission of public art at their Eastern Canada Parts Distribution Centre (ECPDC) in Clarington, Ontario.

The new ECPDC facility opened on December 8, 2020. The plant was built with safety, sustainability, and accessibility at the top of mind — playing an essential role in Toyota’s Canadian parts and service operations.

Thematic Prompt

“Open the frontiers of tomorrow through the energy of people and technology.”
Toyota leads the way to the future of mobility, enriching lives around the world with the safest and most responsible ways of moving people. The proposed artwork should embody Toyota’s core principles of respect for people and the environment.

Budget & Terms

A maximum budget of $65,000 CDN dollars will be granted to complete the artwork. This budget is final and will not be increased under any circumstances. The artist(s)’s responsibility is to submit a project that stays within such a budget. The budget includes artist fees and materials required for the creation and permanent installation of artwork. The artist, or group of artists chosen, will be responsible for all stages of the artwork production, from its conception to its delivery to the Toyota site. The VAC will liaise and assist with the installation on-site according to the directions provided by the artist(s).
