The Town of Niagara-on-the-Lake is issuing a Request for Proposals (RFP) to interested artists (“Artist”) to commission a work of public art to be situated in the future Regent Street Park. This park will be used to memorialize and celebrate the Town’s Black history. The successful artwork will be displayed in a symbolic and/or prominent place within the park to symbolize the resilient efforts the Black population played in the 1793 anti-slavery legislation and their efforts in welcoming newly arrived freedom-seekers, as well as a beacon of hope to remind future generations of the importance of diversity, inclusion, and freedom.
To view a copy of the RFP, please login to www.biddingo.comor pick up a hard copy from the Town’s Municipal Offices located at 1593 Four Mile Creek Road, Virgil or contact Kevin Turcotte via email to receive the documents electronically.
The deadline for proposals is January 31, 2017 however, interested artists must register by January 6, 2017.
