The City of Fredericton is calling for submissions by local artists for its Temporary Public Art Program, which will be displayed in Fredericton over the summer and into the fall.

The goal of this program is to host a vibrant outdoor space for people to enjoy in the city.

The Temporary Public Art Program, which started in 2020 at Phoenix Square, has grown to other public spaces in Fredericton such as Killarney Lake Park. Public spaces under consideration this year include city parks and Phoenix Square just outside City Hall. However, each location will have different conditions and challenges the artist must consider.

Proposals will be reviewed by a jury who will consider safety, sturdiness, public engagement, and the environment around the piece.  Proposals for certain locations may require further investigation based on the project and location proposed.  Artists are responsible for developing the concept, creating the artwork, safe installation, and removal at the end of the display period. Artists will also need to collaborate with City staff to make necessary modifications to meet any challenges.

Applications due April 12.
