The Squamish Arts Council is on the hunt for two public art projects, with preference given to Sea to Sky artists or those from the Squamish Nation who reside anywhere in B.C.
Funding is available for two projects, each up to a maximum of $10,000.
This year’s theme is “Interactive & Light.”
Open to non-profit art groups, individual artists, a variety of community groups and societies, artist collectives, and partnerships between businesses and artists, the projects will be on display outdoors—though they can be permanent or temporary.
Some examples include sculptures, murals, digital projections, or more functional art like bike racks and streetscape improvements.
Project funding, meanwhile, can include art, technician or designer fees, materials and supplies, equipment rentals, cost of setting up a safe venue for production, documentation, project management, or support for volunteers and participants.
A jury will evaluate and select the two projects. The deadline is April 11. For more information, or to apply, visit squamishartscouncil.com/public-art-grant-application.
