Temporary Public Art Program

Each year, artists are invited to submit proposals for temporary public art. Submissions are reviewed by a selection committee, and successful artworks are installed in City parks and public spaces for one year.

How to submit your temporary public art proposal

We are no longer accepting artist proposals for 2019. The call for proposals is issued through Bid Opportunities.  Chosen artworks will be installed in May 2019 as part of Public Art Week.
