Call to Artists

City of Thunder Bay Public Art Program
“Children’s Garden”
Canadian Artists and Artist-led teams are invited to submit Expressions of Interest to create site specific artwork for a Children’s Garden at Prince Arthur’s Landing.  The site of the children’s play area is intended to be a gateway to the future Pond Pavilion and Children’s Boating Area. The art installations should be inviting, interactive, playful and should spark children’s imaginations, while remaining relevant to adults and other park visitors.

These installations are not intended to be a playground in the traditional sense. Interactive and climbable elements can be cleverly concealed or included in the art form and the artwork should be congruous with the high quality landscape and architecture of the park. Innovative, creative and thought-provoking approaches are encouraged.

Guiding theme: Interactive creatures to play with.

Site Visit: Thursday, May 26, 2011 @ 10:00 a.m. Meet at the wooden sign marking the main entrance to Marina Park.
Take the Marina Park overpass, via the intersection of Cumberland and Water Streets. Turn left onto Marina Park Drive. Park near the Skate Park/BMX Plaza.
