Art Wrap Program Artist Roster
Artists interested in participating in this program must apply to be included in the Art Wrap Program Artist Roster, which is updated biannually. The Roster is a list of artists who are pre-qualified to work with the City's Public Art, Transportation, Engineering and Public Works departments as well as community groups to execute art wraps in public spaces.
Artist Roster Application (deadline tba: March 2020)
Artists or artist teams must reside in British Columbia
Artists must have demonstrated experience and skill sets with multiple project stakeholders
The artists will be chosen for inclusion on the Artist Roster through a one-stage selection process. A five-person Selection Panel will convene to review all artist packages and recommend up to thirty (30) artists for the Artist Roster. The Selection Panel will be composed of artists, community representatives and art and design professionals.

Environmental Recycling Units
The Public Art program partnered with Engineering and Public Works, Waste
Reduction and Recycling to select artists for the new environmental recycling units for Gary Point Park (12011 7th Ave) and the Gulf of Georgia Cannery (12138 4th Ave).
The images for the recycling units are responsive to the site and reflect on themes of history, ecology and sustainability.
Museum and Park Services Utility Boxes
Magnolias and Bamboo are three art wraps by artist Anita Lee and are located behind the Steveston Museum and the adjacent Town Square Park at 3811 Moncton Street. Magnolias can be viewed from inside the Steveston Japanese Fishermen’s Benevolent Society Building. Anita Lee describes her approach to her art as a contemporary blend
of guóhuà, the ancient traditional Chinese painting on scrolls, and Western art which captures her interpretation of raw unadulterated natural beauty.
