Fort Saskatchewan launched 2024 Art in Public Places

The City of Fort Saskatchewan has opened up nominations for the 2024 Art in Public Places program.

This program involves the city purchasing two pieces of art from local artists each year and displaying the art at different facilities across the city.

“The heart and soul of any city or community is defined in part by what residents deem to be important for promoting their sense of well-being and for enhancing their quality of life,” the city wrote on its website. “The extent to which arts and culture is celebrated and is an integral part of a community indicates how much well-being and quality of life is valued.”

There are two categories: one for adults, and another for students. In 2023 there was not a single application for the students, with Trisha Sheppard being the artist in 2023, with her painting “An Artist View” on display at the Dow Centennial Centre.

Other artists featured in the program are Ellie Lagrandeur, Gwynne McMaster, and Dale MacMillan. The Art in Public Places program began back in 2005.

Submissions must be made before March 18. You can find the submission page on the City of Fort Saskatchewan website.
