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.

This artwork opportunity is highly visible and will lend a welcoming, celebratory, vibrant, and visually stimulating element to the park entrance.

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.
