The Department of Canadian Heritage (PCH) is seeking professional Canadian artists who work with large-scale outdoor formats, including interactive and light installations. PCH wishes to showcase Canadian artistic excellence to enrich the visitor experience in Canada’s Capital Region. This is an opportunity for artists to present their art in highly visible locations in downtown Ottawa and Gatineau.

PCH is inviting artists to submit up to three existing artworks to be retained as part of a pre-qualified artwork inventory. This inventory will remain active from January 2019 to December 2020, with a possibility of a one-year extension.

Once the artworks are pre-qualified, PCH may then select one or more for exhibition for a determinate period. This may be as part of a major event held in Canada’s capital or as an autonomous installation for an extended duration (e.g., 1 to 2 years).
