CANADA 150 CONTEST - CALL FOR ARTISTS

Jan 31 - Feb 28

Jan 31 - Feb 28

CALL FOR ARTIST ENTRY  

Canada 150 Artist Installation

In celebration of Canada 150, Pickering Town Centre and other 20VIC managed properties are inviting local Canadian artists to create one-of-a-kind installations that will be featured in various malls across the country. These installations will celebrate our country’s 150th birthday and are to be reflective of Canada’s past, present and/or future.

Pickering Town Centre is looking for a local artist from Pickering’s creative community to create a significant installation which will be on display at Pickering Town Centre for two months leading up to Canada Day celebrations. The installation will serve as a focal point and Canada 150 landmark in Pickering Town Centre as well as a photo backdrop for a Canada 150 “selfie” contest.  Shoppers will be invited to take a photo with the installation, post it to their personal social channels and use the hash tag for a chance to win weekly prizes and be entered to win a grand prize that will consist of a trip for two to a designated city in Canada.

Keeping in mind the overall theme of Canada’s past, present and/or future, the artist will design and create a unique piece in the artist’s medium of choice. The installation should occupy a 10’ x 10’ space at minimum, to a maximum of 20’ x 20’ and a maximum height of 10’, and visibly communicate the theme. All installations across Canada will be unveiled on May 1, 2017 and will remain on display in each respective shopping centre until July 2017. The successful candidate will be notified by March 8, 2017.

The selected artist will receive the following:

  • An honorarium of $2,500 f­or the artist’s design
  • In-mall promotion of installation and display in high traffic area for two months at Pickering Town Centre
  • Promotion across Pickering Town Centre’s social, digital, mobile channels + E-newsletter database
  • PR support and promotion for the Canada 150 Artist Installation, the artist and the “selfie” contest
  • Pickering Town Centre will own the completed artwork  

To apply for 20VIC Management Inc.’s Canada 150 Artist Installation at Pickering Town Centre, artists must submit their complete application by Tuesday, February 28 at 5PM local time to lmurphy@20vic.com.  Artists should include the following in their application submission:

  • Project summary about the proposed installation (1-page maximum)
  • A rendering or mockup of the proposed design
  • Artist CV and Bio
  • Portfolio of works (in PDF format)
  • Website link (if applicable)
