  • Encourage education and learning;
  • Celebration of the evolving community; and
  • Reflect transition, growth or discovery

  • CLOSED: This survey has concluded.

    Survey results - Thank you to everyone who participated. Please review the public art survey results.

    The call for artists closed on January 28, 2021. 40 total submissions were received from national and international artists and artist-led teams and 5 submissions have been selected by a citizen jury to prepare detailed proposals for public consultation.

    Your comments will be provided to the jury for consideration among other criteria such as artistic excellence and technical experience in their selection of the winning proposal. The results of this public consultation are therefore not binding on the jury. A report outlining the jury’s final decision and reason for that decision will be posted on this webpage when the winning artist / artist-led team is announced.
