Call for proposals — Temporary exhibits

 Outdoor Artwork “Perspectives”

Canadian Heritage is seeking a dynamic, impactful image that conveys the theme “Perspectives.” This theme reflects the diverse ways that Canadians see themselves, their communities and their country. It also refers to the physical experience of being on the stairs, as one becomes part of the viewer’s perspective of the artwork.

The winning image will be reproduced on exterior-quality graphic film and installed on the York Street Steps for a one-year period starting in spring 2019. The York Street Steps are in a high visibility location in the core of Canada’s Capital Region linking the historic ByWard Market district to Major’s Hill Park and Parliament Hill.

This Call for Proposals is open to all Canadian visual artists, photographers, graphic designers and illustrators between the ages of 18 and 35. All genres will be considered – figurative, abstract, collage, trompe l’oeil, optical illusion, pattern, etc.

The winning artist will receive a fee of $3,000 for the exhibition of their artwork.

Due to file size limitations, additional photos of the site are not included in this email. Should you wish to receive these photos, please email with the subject line “Photo request.”

 The deadline for submissions is March 25, 2019 at 4:00 p.m. (EDT).
