Canada 150 Artist Installation

In celebration of Canada 150, Heritage Place and other 20VIC managed properties are inviting local Canadian artists to create one-of-a-kind installations that will be featured in various malls across the country. These installations will celebrate our country’s 150th birthday and are to be reflective of Canada’s past, present and/or future.

Heritage Place is looking for a local artist from Grey/Bruce’s creative community to create a significant installation which will be on display at Heritage Place for two months leading up to Canada Day celebrations. The installation will serve as a focal point and Canada 150 landmark in Heritage Place as well as a photo backdrop for a Canada 150 “selfie” contest.  Shoppers will be invited to take a photo with the installation, post it to their personal social channels and use the hash tag #hpcanada150selfie for a chance to win weekly prizes and be entered to win a grand prize that will consist of a trip for two to a designated city in Canada.

Keeping in mind the overall theme of Canada’s past, present and/or future, the artist will design and create a unique piece in the artist’s medium of choice. The installation should occupy a 10’ x 10’ space at minimum, to a maximum 10’ X 12’ and a maximum height of 10’, and visibly communicate the theme. All installations across Canada will be unveiled on May 1, 2017 and will remain on display in each respective shopping centre until July 2017. The successful candidate will be notified by February 24 and have two months to complete the project.

The selected artist will receive the following:

  • An honorarium $1,500 f­or the artist’s time and material supplies
  • In-mall promotion of installation and display in high traffic area for two months at Heritage Place
  • Promotion across Heritage Place’s social, digital channels.
