Public Art Call Arc-en-ciel

Status: Complete


The New Brunswick Department of Tourism, Heritage and Culture invites professional artists to submit proposals to design, create and install public artwork at the new Arc-en-ciel School in Oromocto, NB. The total budget for commissioning public artwork at this site is $50,000. Once works are created and installed, they become part of collection ArtNB (formerly The New Brunswick Art Bank). Preference will be given to New Brunswick professional artists. Please reference the guidelines and application form. Potential sites for public art, site plans, and photos can be found in the resources section.

The deadline to submit applications to is Friday, March 12.


The call to artists is open to professional artists. An individual artist or a group of artists may propose a project.

A professional artist is defined as an individual who:

  • Has a history of public presentation in a professional context;
  • Practices an art and offers services in exchange for remuneration as a creator; and
  • Has specialized training in the arts (not necessarily in academic institutions) and is recognized as such by their peers.


  • Submissions from students at any level are not eligible;
  • Artists who are contract employees of NB Francophone South School District are not eligible;
  • Members of the Evaluation Committee, the GNB Steering Committee, and their immediate families are ineligible to apply.


The Province of New Brunswick has constructed a new school at 30 Beaufort Street in Oromocto. The school serves 50 staff and approx. 325 students in grades K to 8 in the Francophone South School District.
