Lu’ma Native Housing Society invites Indigenous artists of all design artwork disciplines to submit an artwork proposal for display at the future Lu’ma Housing building at 3819 Boundary Road, Vancouver.
The request is for one large art piece that promotes a sense of motivation, pride and belonging for residents and enhances the aesthetic and public appeal of the building. The proposal should reflect an artistic expression of Coast Salish culture, but could blend other Indigenous cultural expression within it.
This Indigenous art piece will not only add to the beauty of the neighborhood, but will also serve to interpret and reflect the social, cultural, environment and historic fabric of our Indigenous people within the community at large.
Artwork must be an original, place-specific work and may consist of either discrete sculptural elements or integrated artist-designed elements.
For more information, read the request for proposals.
The successful artist(s) will work closely with Lu’ma Development Management in order to meet all necessary technical and scheduling requirements.
Lu’ma is seeking proposals from Indigenous artists or artists teams who:
- Through their work, express an original, innovative and creative approach to the practice and creation of art in the public realm
- Demonstrate the ability to respond sympathetically to the social purpose of the affordable housing that is being built for the Indigenous community
- Will be supportive in a ceremonial opening of the building, that will also be the unveiling of the art.
