The Green Necklace Project

Status: 
Closed

This is a Call for Expressions of Interest from the City of North Vancouver Public Art Program, seeking an artist or artist team to develop and install a public artwork as part of the Green Necklace urban greenway project. Submission deadline is Monday, September 14, 2015, 4pm.

The Green Necklace is a proposed urban greenway encircling the urban centre of the City. It will link parks, public spaces and natural habitats and provide safe alternative transportation options and recreation opportunities for people of all ages and abilities. It will also provide important connections to other trail systems and bicycle routes in the City such as the Ravine Trail System and the North Shore Spirit Trail.

The selected artist(s) for this project will:

  • Develop a concept plan for a series of artistic interventions that could double as site specific way-finding elements along existing and future sections of the Green Necklace;
  • Consider creative potential for artistically enhancing new and existing pathway elements on the Green Necklace;
  • Fabricate and install the first of these artistic interventions primarily along the Mahon Section. This section runs adjacent to Carson Graham High School, several soccer and baseball fields, a running track, children’s waterpark and Fen Burdett Stadium.
