INVITATION
This Request for Proposals ("RFP") is an invitation to prospective proponents to submit proposals for the provision of services to design, fabrication and installation of permanent public artwork at Niagara Parks Botanical Gardens as further described in Part 2 - The Deliverables (the “Deliverables"). This RFP is issued by The Niagara Parks Commission (NPC) and is a Provincial Crown Agency and a corporation incorporated by an Act of the Provincial Legislature of Ontario on the 23rd of April 1887 and continued under the Niagara Parks Act. R.S.O. 1990, Chapter N3.
 
NPC invites professional artists to submit a proposal for the design, fabrication and installation of permanent public artwork at Niagara Parks Botanical Gardens that celebrates and embodies the spirit of the people of Niagara from our original First Nations inhabitants to today’s newcomers, our shared history and significant contribution to Ontario and Canada. The professional commissioned piece will become the launch of NPC ‘s public art strategy developed rooting new cultural exhibits within the Park.
 
The inspiration/theme of the art will recognize and celebrate ourselves as citizens of Ontario.  Prompting viewers’ delight, the piece will provoke ideas related to nature and geology, diversity of social identities and yes, of course, the 150 years of the province and country. Located at the entrance plaza to Niagara Parks Botanical Gardens, the artwork will connect with the location and NPC’s identity in a powerful and engaging way.
 
The winning professional submission will be commissioned to create the permanent outdoor art piece for project unveiling in the fall of 2017 at Rooted in the Garden.
