Storeys Café, Community Public Art Project [RFQ]

City of Richmond

The Richmond Public Art Program seeks an artist or artist team to create a digitally printed wall mural for the Storeys Café at 8080 Anderson Road, Richmond, BC. The commissioned artist will work with community members to encourage individual creative expression from a multi-generational and culturally diverse community within the Storeys development. Artists with socially engaged art practices incorporating drawing, painting, photography, printmaking and other mixed-media that can easily be digitally reproduced are encouraged to apply.

The project will provide opportunities for the local community to participate in social, cross-cultural exchange and hands-on art making activities. Artists with experience working with individuals with special needs or who are vulnerable or at risk would be an asset.

Artist Fee: $6,500
Eligibility: Artists residing in Greater Vancouver
Deadline: Thursday, June 28, 2018
Completion: Fall 2018
