CALGARY.-The City of Calgary Public Art Program seeks Expressions of Interest (i.e. Request for Qualifications) from experienced artists for inclusion in our Artist Roster. This call is open to local, national and international artists.
The Artist Roster prequalifies artists for consideration on public art initiatives commissioned via limited calls (invitational opportunities) and/or direct award (single source) contracts. All Artist Roster submissions are reviewed by an external selection panel. Selection to the Artist Roster does not guarantee a contract with The City.
Artists added to the Artist Roster will have practical, demonstrated experience in the field of public art, including collaboration with multi-disciplinary teams. Experience working within set budgets and construction schedules is considered an asset.
Artist selections are evaluated based on: Stated interest and approach; Quality of professional qualifications and relevant experience; Demonstrated excellence of past work in conceptual, aesthetic and technical terms.
Expressions of Interest submissions are accepted on an ongoing basis. Selection panels convene to review the submissions as deemed necessary by Program staff.
To apply: Request Expression of Interest #05-008 from Edwin Whang, Buyer, Finance & Supply (Purchasing), phone: (403) 268-4090, email: firstname.lastname@example.org. Sorry, but this document is not available online.
Note: the Open Call process is separate from the Artist Roster. When an open call to artists is issued for a specific public art project, all interested artists (including those on the Artist Roster) must complete a submission in order to be considered.
