Open Call to Musqueam Artists: Marpole Artist-Designed Crosswalk

Submission Deadline: Noon on Wednesday, May 30, 2018

In collaboration with Musqueam, the City of Vancouver Public Art Program is commissioning an original two-dimensional artwork from a Musqueam artist, with the intent of producing an artist-designed 3-section crosswalk at the pedestrian crossings on south Granville street between 70th and 68th avenues.

This art commission celebrates the vibrancy of Musqueam artistic traditions and the community today by providing further recognition of Musqueam history and territory. This highly visible location is in proximity to c̓əsnaʔəm, Musqueam’s ancient village and cemetery, as well as the Fraser River.

An information session, with optional site visit to follow, will be held:
4:30 – 6:00 pm, Wednesday, May 9th,
at the Musqueam Community Centre cafe.
