Artist Opportunity

The City of Pickering invites Artists or Artist teams to submit proposals for permanent sculptures of simplified Poppy markers to be installed on the light posts throughout Esplanade Park in Pickering. This is another way residents can reflect, honour and remember Veterans on Remembrance Day, as well as at other times of the year. The works are to be installed on the 11 (eleven) light posts marking the way the Royal Canadian Legion Branch 606 takes to the Cenotaph. Artworks are expected to be displayed year-round, permanently. One Artist/Team will be commissioned by The City of Pickering to create the work.

 

The total budget for the project, including artist fees, materials, and installation is $35,000 maximum (including HST).
