Doon Pioneer Park Community Centre Public Art Competition
Artists/artist teams are invited to submit proposals for a one-stage competition to provide a site-specific work of public art that combines an artistic vision with functionality for an outdoor seating installation at Doon Pioneer Park Community Centre, Kitchener, Ontario. The competition is open to all emerging and established artists/teams residing in Canada. Each artist(s)/team is limited to one entry.
The Doon Pioneer Park Community Centre is located in the southwest corner of the city at 150 Pioneer Park Drive, on the territory of Six Nations on the Haldimand Tract, near the majestic Grand River. This area is forecasted to be the fastest growing neighbourhood in Kitchener over the next 20 years.
People who visit and live here value the walkability of nearby trails, and a variety of wildlife in the area. Residents describe Doon as a great place to live because of the “small town” feel. One family says: “It feels like a small community as there is still a divide between Doon and the rest of Kitchener in terms of transportation and the surrounding industrial lands”.
Submissions are due by Monday, September 23, 2019 at 11:59 p.m.
