Burlington, Ont.— Jan. 17, 2024 — The public art annual Local Artist Program is open for submissions until Feb. 16. This program commissions local artists to create a variety of small to medium scale murals throughout Burlington. The City is inviting local artists to submit their design ideas for three unique locations:
- Lampman Park, 1691 Lampman Ave.
This mural will be printed on a vinyl wrap that will cover a small water system safety cover box. The artwork must cover all four sides plus the top of the box.
- Waterfront Parking Garage, 414 Locust St. exterior wall
This mural will replace the large exterior banner facing Lakeshore Road. The artwork will act as a “Welcome to Burlington” sign and will be reproduced on a large-format vinyl banner.
- Waterfront Parking Garage, 414 Locust St. interior wall
A new mural is being commissioned for the interior of the parking garage on the ground floor. The artwork will be reproduced and printed on a vinyl wrap.
This is a design only commission: the City of Burlington will be responsible for the fabrication and installation of the vinyl wraps. Burlington artists may create a new artwork concept for this project or reformat an existing artwork. Successful artists will need to submit a high-resolution digital file of their artwork concept (help is available upon request). Applicants must be a resident of Burlington, Ont.
Applications are due by Friday, Feb. 16, 2024 at 11:59 p.m. For more information and to apply online, please visit www.burlington.ca/publicart and https://burlingtonpublicart.com/calls-for-artists/
