The Red Deer Public Art Program integrates outstanding works of art into public spaces and facilities throughout the city that reflect our community’s distinct culture and character.  Through the acquisition of artworks for public display, The City provides an engaging and dynamic urban environment and creates a cultural legacy for the future. The City invites artists to participate in two new public art competitions. The purpose of this pre-qualification is to select up to three initial artistic concepts for each project and invite the winning submissions to a Phase II competition. In the Phase II competition artists will further develop their proposals and present their projects to the City of Red Deer’s Public Art Commission. Artist’s will receive a stipend of $2500 for materials and travel incurred for their participation in the Phase II competition.

Draw More Income 2017 EP11: Eveline Kolijn

Hey everyone, it’s another episode of The 2017 Draw More Income Podcast. Today, we are releasing an interview with Calgary artist Eveline Kolijn recorded last month at The Alberta Printmaker’s Society. Eveline’s extensive and unique background in the arts made her an obvious suspect for sitting down to talk shop about being an artist. She’s showing her work constantly, is on all sorts of boards around town, regularly does artistic community projects, and all of this is AFTER having a completely different life studying social sciences in the Netherlands. So, sit back and listen to her chat about stuff like public art, board membership, and switching into the fine arts later in life.

Also, I’d love to say thanks to The Alberta Printmaker’s Society for letting us record this interview in their space. Listeners, if you’re ever looking for another cool Calgary arts organization to hang out with, A/P is pretty great.
