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 art proposal
The call for proposals is issued through Bid Opportunities. Intake for 2018 art proposals has closed. Chosen artworks will be installed in May 2018 as part of Public Art Week.
