Edmonton | Call to Edmonton Artists :: Ivor Dent Sports Park (RFP)

Future Ivor Dent Sports ParkThe Ivor Dent Sports Park public art competition, open to professional Artists residing in Edmonton and surrounding area, is held in accordance with the City of Edmonton policy “Percent for Art to Provide and Encourage Art in Public Areas” (C458C).

The Edmonton Arts Council Public Art Program, on behalf of the City of Edmonton, seeks an artist or artist team to create a series of artistic elements to be attached to light poles lining the park entrance.
