Polygon Elle in coordination with the City of North Vancouver's Developer Public Art Program is inviting Expressions of Interest from Canadian and US professional artists and artist teams, to create original site-specific public artwork associated with this new development project to be built in the Central Lonsdale neighbourhood of North Vancouver.
Elle will be a 22-story residential tower situated on a commercial podium. The site is within one block of Lonsdale Avenue, which is the cultural, commercial, and institutional hub of the community. Located within a ten-minute walk to an array of other essential services and amenities, including the Lions Gate Regional Hospital, City Hall, the library, Harry Jerome Community Recreation Centre, and RCMP headquarters.
Following thoughtful site analysis, the primary public art opportunity has been identified as the corner of the laneway and 15th Street. The public art has the potential to extend and consider an optional secondary public art opportunity identified as the glazing on the building facade fronting the lane. These locations offer high visibility and accessibility with multiple engagement opportunities for a diverse array of audiences, including pedestrians, cyclists, transit users and motorists.
Deadline April 17, 2023 (9 am PST)
