Calling all artists! Rohit Group welcomes submissions for public art at Stadium Yards
Rohit Group of Companies has launched a Request for Proposal (RFP) for public art submissions for the Stadium Yards District located in Edmonton, Alberta. We are looking for a permanent public art installation that becomes a destination and represents the energy, brand, and vibrancy of the district.
Stadium Yards is Edmonton’s newest core community, an urban village located in the heart of the city. This exciting mixed-use transit-oriented development is located near the River Valley, Stadium LRT Station and Commonwealth Recreation Centre. The first phase consists of two residential rental buildings and a commercial building. The development is located on the historic Muttart Lands which was previously a lumber yard. The overall community design recognizes the long history of the land which played an important role in shaping Edmonton from the early 1900s. Stadium Yards is in alignment with the City of Edmonton’s Transit-Oriented Development Project; a planning concept that integrates transportation, land use and development by concentrating housing, shopping, and employment within proximity of the Stadium transit station. With a future of diverse housing types and retail/commercial space, it is an area where people can work, play, and live.
Rohit Group is looking for a creative, engaging, and permanent Public Art piece that sparks joy, curiosity, and emotions and creates a sense of place by becoming a destination. The artists may incorporate elements of light, color, movement, and scale into the design to elevate the uniqueness of the artwork. Any type of media can be used to achieve the objectives. The artwork can also be incorporated with light, technology, or interactive elements. A design must, however, be appropriate in terms of scale, form, color, materials, and textures to the adjacent residential buildings and surrounding environment. The artists should consider best urban design practices/principles, Winter City Guidelines/weather in Edmonton, easy maintenance, and durable material.
Contest closes at 5pm MST on Monday, April 11th so don’t delay!
