Pivot Adera Projects Ltd., in partnership with the District of North Vancouver, invites expressions of interest from professional artists or artist teams to create a public artwork at the entrance to the south section of the District-planned Green Spine linear park as part of the Pivot development project in North Vancouver's evolving Lynn Creek Town Centre. Situated within the Green Spine and reflecting the area’s unique qualities, the public artwork will energize the public realm and contribute to the vitality of this emerging community.
The site for the public art opportunity is identified as the open space at the south entry point to the Green Spine linear park at Oxford Street, adjacent to the development on District property. Envisioned as a major new open green space in the developing Lynn Creek Town Centre to facilitate pedestrian and cyclist movement, promote social interaction, and foster a unique community identity and sense of place, the Green Spine offers the potential for a gateway public artwork with placemaking and wayfinding qualities.
The public art opportunity allows for a wide range of approaches and possibilities in form and media, including the incorporation of gateway and wayfinding elements, lighting, and other innovate media as well as an integrated approach with the landscape and hardscape design. Selected early in the development process, the artist will have the opportunity to become an integral member of the design team, and will be given as much creative license as possible to activate the space, integrating art to the site and its community context in a meaningful and engaging way.
