Art in the Community: Call for 3D Artwork
This call is now CLOSED.
District of North Vancouver Municipal Hall

Artwork by Carol Demers

North Van Arts is seeking 3D artists to exhibit their work in the foyer of the District of North Vancouver Municipal Hall. Successful candidates will be booked for an eight to twelve week exhibition. The first exhibition will begin in June 2024.

As the exhibition space is in the District of North Vancouver Municipal Hall, we are especially keen to work with artists who live in or are deeply connected to the District of North Vancouver. However, we are accepting applications from all North Shore artists, as well as from artists in greater Vancouver. We are unable to accept applications from beyond the lower mainland for this call; please visit our Calls for Artists page to learn of other opportunities.

The Art in the Community programme, run by North Van Arts, has a mandate to celebrate emerging and professional artists through exhibitions in public spaces, which serves to promote local artists and make their original work accessible to the public. We do not require previous exhibition experience, and are keen to work with both emerging and established artists.
