The New Brunswick Department of Tourism, Heritage and Culture invites professional artists to submit proposals to design, create and install public artwork at the new Hanwell Park Academy School in Hanwell, New Brunswick. The total budget for commissioning public artwork at this site is $50,000. Once works are created and installed, they become part of collection ArtNB (formerly The New Brunswick Art Bank). Preference will be given to New Brunswick professional artists.
The call to artists is open to professional artists. An individual artist or a group of artists may propose a project.
A professional artist is defined as an individual who:
o Has a history of public presentation in a professional context;
o Practices an art and offers services in exchange for remuneration as a creator; and
o Has specialized training in the arts (not necessarily in academic institutions) and is recognized as such by their peers.
o Submissions from students at any level are not eligible;
o Artists who are contract employees of NB Anglophone West School District are not eligible;
o Members of the Evaluation Committee, the GNB Steering Committee, and their immediate families are ineligible to apply.
The Province of New Brunswick has constructed a new school located at 2321 Route 640 in Hanwell. Hanwell School is a K-8 school that is anticipated to open in September 2022. The school is configured to support 650 students.
