Call to Artists - Expressions of Interest
Mount Royal Conservatory
City of Calgary Public Art Program,
Calgary, Alberta, Canada
Deadline for Submissions: September 6, 2011 at 2:30pm local time.
Budget: $85,000 CDN.

Since 1910, thousands of people of all ages and abilities have thrived because of the Mount Royal Conservatory’s commitment to students. Today it is one of the largest performing arts schools in Canada, setting the standard in music and speech arts. Its programs nurture the artistic potential of each student by providing them with a learning environment that fosters passion and excellence.

The successful artist will engage the selection committee with their artistic vision; have practical, demonstrated experience in the field of public art; a history of successful collaborations with multidisciplinary teams and community stakeholders; and an ability to work within set budgets and construction schedules.

In addition to being a striking piece of art that warrants its featured position in the balcony lobby, the piece must be resilient, durable, low maintenance, and a fully functional part of the overall design. It will serve a structural function as a movable wall (positioned on a track) separating the balcony lobby from a private room / VIP reception area. The approximate size will be 7 m (width) by 3.7 m (height).

The selected artist will work with the lead designer (Pfeiffer and Partners) and Modernfold system to ensure the functionality of the work. The piece must be tested and approved by Pfeiffer Partners.
