The City of Kitchener sent us this information so we are posting it for everyone to read:
City of Kitchener Request for Proposal: Art in the Public Realm – Weber Street and Guelph Street (closes July 7, 2017)
The City of Kitchener invites professional design firms/artists to submit a proposal for a two-stage competition to design and produce a site-specific public art piece for installation near the corner of Weber Street West and Guelph Street in Kitchener, Ontario. The successful proponent will design and fabricate a piece that reflects the evolution of Kitchener’s economy, including, but not limited to, Kitchener’s industrial and manufacturing history and emerging technology and IT sectors. Kitchener’s progression towards becoming a more sustainable and environmentally conscious community should also be incorporated into the design.
