Call for Artist Design for Interpretive Signage for City of Kamloops

Kamloops, B.C. - The City of Kamloops Arts Commission is leading the call for the design of a sign frame for all interpretive signage in our parks and along our trails, as recommended in the recently adopted Parks Master Plan.

Interpretive signage may include historical information and locations of interest to visitors.  The design will act as a standardized frame that interpretive information, photographs or artistic images will be installed within.

The selected designer/artist will be awarded a $3000 cash award, and the selected submission will become the sole property of the City of Kamloops. 

All submissions will include, in detail: 

  • images of the front, the rear and side profile of the template;
  • dimensions and materials;
  • installation information; and
  • the artist statement relevant to the design and artist bio.

The selection process will be made by a jury comprised of members of the City of Kamloops Arts Commission, a member of the City of Kamloops Heritage Commission, a member of the City of Kamloops Parks and Recreation Commission, the City of Kamloops Parks Planning Supervisor and the City of Kamloops Cultural Manager. 

Questions may be directed to bberger@kamloops.ca.

Submissions must be received at City Hall, 7 West Victoria Street, no later than 4:00 pm on Friday, April 1, 2016.
