The Museum of North Vancouver is inviting Expressions of Interest from experienced artists working in the local Indigenous tradition, to prepare contemporary Coast Salish graphic designs that could be featured on the glass transom windows surrounding the lobby of the newly built museum facility on Esplanade Avenue.
The goal of this project is to select one or possibly two artists who can work collaboratively on a creative design that would cohesively reflect cultural aspects of both Squamish and Tsleil-Waututh Nations.
The Museum’s purpose in commissioning this work is to:
- Honour and reflect the land and the peoples of the land on which the museum is built.
- Emphasize the commitment to the collaboration between MONOVA and the Nations as now being implemented by the MONOVA Indigenous Voices Advisory Committee.
- Provide a welcome message, in both traditional languages.
