The Call to Artists for 2015 is closed.

Request for Proposals: igNIGHT

The Regional Municipality of Wood Buffalo (RMWB) invites artists to submit proposals to stage temporary, light-based public art in downtown Fort McMurray. The RMWB seeks to capitalize on opportunities to reimagine, transform, and energize public spaces by showcasing igNIGHT-Art Illuminated. This temporary public art event will take place from October 23 to November 1, 2015, from sundown to midnight daily. Artists are asked to explore potential opportunities for using light to enhance, animate, interact with or re-contextualize natural and/or built environments. Existing artworks that have not been showcased in Fort McMurray will also be considered.
