Subject: Call to Artists - Functional Public Art RFPQ Due Nov 14

Dear arts professionals,
Please see invitation below, and pass on to anyone you think may be interested in pre-qualifying.


Call to Artists:

The City of Waterloo invites experienced, professional artists or a team of professional artists to submit their qualifications for the opportunity to develop new public art work. The total all-inclusive budget for all components of this public art project is $45,000.

Waterloo Park is the premier park in the City of Waterloo. Often called the "jewel of the city", Waterloo Park boasts 45 hectares (111 acres) of prime parkland, with a multitude of active and passive uses.

A vision for the long-term development of this park is provided by the Waterloo Park Master Plan. This vision is of a people-oriented gathering place for the entire community, with venues that offer a variety of unstructured recreational and cultural experiences. The Master Plan outlines an ambitious plan that is intended to direct the development of the park over the next 20 years and beyond. This document provides a context as well as the guiding principles that will shape the park including plans for the area known as the Community Room. As part of this plan, two community harvest tables will be commissioned as part of the park's development.

The commissioned community harvest tables will be located in the heart of the Community Room. This outdoor space includes an area of 775m2 that is surrounded by ornate pear trees. Surfaces include grass with border paving. This area will be used as collective seating for community gatherings including passive activities like reading, sitting, and eating. This iconic green space is intended to offer opportunities for citizens to congregate at a central community table that incorporates elements of the surrounding green space as well as the park's on-going history into the design. These spaces are available to use by the community year-round.

The selected artistic work will reflect the long and varied history of Waterloo Park and the experiences of its users. The artist(s) selected for the project will be responsible for developing and implementing an artistic work for the Waterloo Park Community Room harvest tables. This will include the concept, design, fabrication, and installation of two community harvest tables. The design for the community harvest tables will be inclusive of all hardware, seating, table top, and fixtures.
