Lethbridge | City of Lethbridge Public Art Call—UPDATE

City of Lethbridge logoPublic Art Small Project | Lethbridge Sports Council – Reposting

The City of Lethbridge Art Committee, on behalf of the Lethbridge Sport Council, is seeking an artist to design and fabricate a mural (on panel) or bas relief sculpture (maximum 3” depth) to be installed in the entrance stairwell of the Lethbridge Sport Council offices located on the second floor of the Nicholas Sheran Leisure Ice Centre Ice (401 Laval Blvd W.).

The intent of the project is to provide a permanent piece of public art that celebrates community sports while creating a more welcoming, appealing and professional entrance to the Lethbridge Sport Council office and the Arena Concourse. The City of Lethbridge will be responsible for the installation of the artwork.

This is a reposting of an earlier call. The revised call includes a significant increase in the project budget. Further information is available at:
