The City of Airdrie and STEPS invite professional artists or artist teams based in Canada to submit expressions of interest and qualifications to create landmark public artworks to be placed within and adjacent to the forthcoming Airdrie Multi-Use Facility & Library.
The public artworks will be selected through an open, two-stage national competition, with a total budget of approximately $390,000 CAD. The project budget includes all costs directly associated with the artwork including; fees for design, fabrication, shipping, installation, engineering and professional services, insurance, permits, travel and other incidental and production expenses. Up to four (4) artists or artist teams will be shortlisted and paid $4000 CAD each to create detailed proposals. Community engagement will be a requirement for the selected artist/artist team.
