Call for entries – Backlane Public Art Project

Downtown Winnipeg BIZ has a call for entries – Backlane Public Art Project.

WBacklane examplee are inviting conceptual design proposals from artists / designers who are interested in shifting perceptions and celebrating the unique spaces of downtown Winnipeg backlanes.

Briefly, the Downtown Winnipeg BIZ and partners seek a design for a semi-permanent (three to five year lifespan), impactful, innovative contemporary public artwork or spatial enhancement for installation in a downtown Winnipeg backlane. The goal is to transform uninviting backlanes into vibrant, unique and welcoming places that invite exploration, wandering and events.

This is a national design competition open to all individuals engaged with the design and art community.  The artist / designer (or team) of the winning entry will receive a $5,000 honorarium. The deadline for entries is March 31, 2016.
