Request for Expressions of Interest

The City of Surrey invites Expressions of Interest from professional artists or artist teams for a sculpture for a new park north of Hazelgrove Elementary School in East Clayton, Surrey.

Expressions of Interest (EOI) are sought for an artwork to be placed on a low grassed mound near the park entrance off of 190th Street at 71st Avenue.  The artwork will be highly visible and should convey elegance through simplicity; use of vertical components; create interest within the horticulture context; use materials which complement the park setting and water features; and be appropriate for installing in an active park.  The artwork should not utilize water and be low maintenance.  Also the design should anticipate attachment to a concrete slab foundation on the grass mound.

THEME:
Artists answering this call are invited to envision a sculpture that responds to "Water" as the theme for the artwork.

BUDGET:
The project budget is $100,000 inclusive of all costs including artist fees, design, materials, insurance, all engineering expenses, fabrication, delivery, installation, travel and taxes.

ELIGIBILITY:
This call is open to qualified professionals and artist teams, defined as having specialized training in the field or a history of having exhibitions as an artist, and who are recognized as artists by peers and arts professionals.
