The Department of Canadian Heritage (PCH) is seeking professional Canadian artists who work with large-scale outdoor formats, including interactive and light installations. PCH wishes to showcase Canadian artistic excellence to enrich the visitor experience in Canada’s Capital Region. This is an opportunity for artists to present their art in highly visible locations in downtown Ottawa and Gatineau. Artists’ artworks that are retained in the inventory may be used for exhibitions at special events (such as Canada Day or Winterlude) or may be displayed at various locations in Canada’s Capital Region for longer term exhibitions.

PCH is inviting artists to submit up to three existing three-dimensional artworks to be retained as part of a pre-qualified artwork inventory for long-term exhibits and major events. This inventory will remain active for two years with a possibility of a one-year extension.

Once the artworks are pre-qualified, PCH may then select one or more artworks for exhibition for a determinate period. This may be as part of a major event held in Canada’s Capital Region or as an autonomous installation for an extended duration (e.g., 6 months to 2 years).

Deadline for sending your submission: June 4th, 2024 EDT
