Trans Canada Highway / Bowfort Road Interchange Public Art Project

The City of Calgary Public Art Program and the Transportation Department are seeking a professional artist(s) with established public art experience for a permanent public art project at the new Trans Canada Highway/Bowfort Road Interchange.
Trans Canada Highway and Bowfort Road is a new interchange located in the northwest quadrant of Calgary. The highway is an important roadway network link in Calgary, providing direct connections between the east and west city limits and connecting to the provincial and national highway systems. It also serves as a key east-west truck route through the city and an important commuter connection from northwest Calgary to downtown. This segment of the highway between the west city limits and Sarcee Trail is the primary entrance to Calgary from British Columbia and the Rocky Mountain Parks.
This is a high profile and exciting opportunity to create a significant corridor for entering Calgary, and/or exiting to the majestic Rocky Mountains and mountain parks to the west. 
Public Art Budget​ $500K
Year Approved​ 2015

The call for artists has now closed. The chosen artist will be announced once the selection panel and contractural processes are complete.

As part of our commitment to provide a variety of opportunities for emerging public artists, we are pleased to offer a mentorship opportunity as part of this project. View the mentorship call to artists to learn more. Deadline for submissions is Thursday, March 31, 2016 at 4 p.m. MST.

Expected Completion​ Winter 2017​
