The City of Saint John is seeking to commission public artwork from a professional artist or artist team of Wolastoqiyik, Mi’kmaq, or Passamaquoddy heritage to be placed within City Hall. This artwork builds on the city’s commitment to create awareness of indigenous cultures, peoples, and heritage.

The budget for the creation, design, and installation of the piece is $20,000. The artwork can be pre-existing or created for the commission. A jury comprised of City Staff, members of the Saint John Community Arts Board, professional artists, and members of the Indigenous community will review the submissions and determine artist.

The selected artwork will be integrated into the first floors of City Hall. As the welcome space for visitors, residents, and guests to City Hall, this location allows for high visibility, impact, community connection, and aligns with the building’s natural flow and themes. The piece will be installed by April 1st, 2024.

The deadline for applications is Friday, December 15, 2023.
