Have your say in selecting public art for Churchill Avenue

2 Jan

Ottawa – Residents will have an opportunity to meet the four shortlisted artists/artist teams and review their proposals for public art to be installed at the intersection of Churchill and Byron avenues. The road reconstruction project, scheduled for completion in the spring of 2014, will improve the pedestrian corridors, feature separated cycling lanes and implement traffic calming and transit priority measures.

Four of the 14 local artists/artist teams that responded to the call to artists: request for proposals, have been shortlisted and an opportunity to meet the artists, view the proposals, and record your comments will take place on Monday, January 7 from 5:30 to 7:30 p.m. at the Churchill Seniors Centre at 345 Richmond Road. Comments from the public will be provided to the Art Selection Committee as they deliberate and select the winning proposal.

Public input will ensure that residents and future visitors to the Westboro community will be able to view innovative public art integrated into the streetscape. The four finalists – Marcus Kucey Jones, Don Maynard, Jennifer Stead and artist team Oded and Pamela Ravek – will present sketches, scale models or maquettes and detailed work plans including budgets of the proposed artworks.

The City of Ottawa commissions local artists’ works for display in public spaces from a per cent of funds that is set aside for municipal development projects. Public art is found in municipal buildings, open spaces, pedestrian corridors, roadways, and transit ways. It creates a unique sense of place, a destination, focal points for activity, and meeting places.
