The Anchor', City of North Vancouver


BT Investments Ltd. is now accepting expressions of interest from artists or artist teams to design and integrate site-specific public art at their new 131 East Third street development called 'The Anchor' in North Vancouver.

The development is mixed use, condos, market rental units and commercial ground floor unit. The choice of building name, 'The Anchor', reflects several themes. It has an obvious ship building connotation, and as well represents some symbolism for an opportunity for those downsizing, or those looking to stay where they were brought up, to 'Anchor' themselves to the North Shore. The building should attract locals and the 'Anchor' motif may give inspiration to artists expanding upon that theme.

Public Art Call
Eligibility guidelines: 

This opportunity is open to professional artists, artist teams and design professionals who are able to meet the creative, eligibility and performance criteria; and, can demonstrate the skills to manage all phases of the implementation from design to installation coordination with the design team and the construction contractors.
