EOI Submission deadline: EXTENDED November 10, 2022
The City of Lethbridge Public Art Program is seeking an artist to design an artwork to be used to vinyl wrap on the entrance canopy of the Multicultural Centre. Artists will be commissioned to provide a design for the vinyl wrap, which is 318” wide and 24” high. Artists are not responsible for the fabrication and installation of the vinyl wrap. This work will be completed by City of Lethbridge contractors. The successful artist will be required to participate in a workshop with the graphic designer in advance of executing their design. A community engagement session – and incorporation of community input – will also be a key component of this project.
Located at 421 – 6th Ave S, the Multicultural Centre is an active hub for the Southern Alberta Ethnic Association and their member groups. With a boardroom, ballroom and catering kitchen within the building, the Multicultural Centre is an exceptional location for group gatherings for a variety of reason. Facing south, this vinyl wrap will be highly visible from Whoop Up Drive for both east and west-driving commuters. Office windows which face 5th Street S may also end up being wrapped with imagery produced during the community engagement session.
This competition is open to local artists of all ages, at all levels of their artistic practice.
