Callout for artists to create artwork on new industrial building in Chilliwack

Mural will adorn a waste water treatment plant building set to be completed this fall

A large-scale artist is being sought to create a piece of public art on a new building at the Chilliwack waste water treatment plant.

The artist callout from City of Chilliwack closes on Sept. 3 for a mural that will adorn the inlet works building set be to completed this fall.

“Public art has the power to energize and enhance our public spaces, make us think, and transform where we live, work and play,” according to city documents on the project.

The lower cement ‘ribbon’ on the building that’s now under construction will be the canvas for this latest public art piece.

The renderings of the new building show a flat surface where the mural will be painted.

All proposals should include supply costs, artist fees, and the artist’s explanation.

Submissions must be on a document no larger than a 8.5 inch by 11-inch sheet, sent by email to marleau@chilliwack.com or dropped off at City Hall (8550 Young Rd., Chilliwack, B.C., V2P 8A4) no later then 3:30 p.m. on September 3, 2020.
