CALGARY.- The City of Calgary Public Art Program invites artists to submit an Expression of Interest for the Genesis Centre of Community Wellness Public Art Project.

The facility, being constructed at 7556 Falconridge Blvd. N.E. , is in the heart of northeast Calgary and aims to become a centre of community that embodies inclusiveness, accessibility, well-being, enablement, relevance and a sense of responsibility. This public art project is seen as an opportunity to bring these values together to enrich the health, wellness, spirit and unity of those that visit the centre.

The successful artist and/or artist team will have practical, demonstrated experience in the field of public art, a history of collaborating with multi-disciplinary teams and the ability to work within set budgets and construction schedules. Interactive, kinetic and/or functional public art is of especial interest to the project team, and it must be proven to be resilient, durable, low maintenance, and resistant to both vandalism and environmental factors.

The total budget for this public art project is set at $559,500.00 CDN. The project budget is all-inclusive, including but not limited to: artist fees, travel, research, design, engineering and design services, materials, equipment, fabrication, transportation, permit fees, taxes and brokerage fees.

Deadline for submissions is Monday, September 28, 2009 at 4:30pm MST.
