Art in Public Places — St. Albert 150th Anniversary Celebration
Volunteer Appreciation Bronze Sculpture Project
The St. Albert 150th Anniversary Celebration Committee and City of St. Albert are pleased to announce a competition for a bronze sculpture to commemorate volunteer appreciation in St. Albert and the 150th Anniversary Celebration.
Expressions of interest and qualifications may be submitted by experienced artists or artist teams with a demonstrated ability to produce three dimensional outdoor public art. This competition is open to local and regional artists.
The goal of the project is to mark St. Albert’s 150th Anniversary Celebration with a tribute to the volunteer community in St. Albert.
St. Albert 150th Anniversary Celebration has chosen volunteering as the subject matter of the sculpture because it is vital to St. Albert’s sense of community and identity. St. Albert would not be the city it is without the help of tireless volunteers and the hours of work they dedicate to bettering the city. The events that the 150th Anniversary Celebration Committee has planned for Rendezvous 2011 would not be possible without the help of community volunteers.
Deadline for submissions
Phase 1: Proposals must be received no later than 4 PM on Thursday, July 14, 2011.
Phase 2: Following the initial submission review and evaluation, the St. Albert 150th Anniversary Celebration may elect to shortlist the highest evaluated submissions and, if necessary, request further information, a presentation and/or additional drawings from the shortlisted candidates for review and evaluation. In addition, the successful candidate will be required to complete a maquette for public display.
Candidate selection: The successful candidate will be advised in July 2011.
