Vanier + Montreal Road Public Art Plan

Thanks to everyone who came out to the Montreal Road Revitalization public information session! After considerable research and community engagement the Public Art Program was pleased to release the Vanier + Montreal Road Public Art Plan.

Developed by Rebecca Carbin of ART + PUBLIC UnLtd, the public art plan is rooted in conversations with community and presents a holistic, forward-thinking strategy for public art in Vanier. The Public Art Plan aims to reflect the communities’ unique character and diversity through innovative public art initiatives. Based on key findings from community engagement the Public Art Plan lays out public art opportunities and recommendations for implementation.

The Public Art Program will consider these recommendations when offering opportunities to artists for integrating with revitalization projects and by working in partnership with community and business partners.

Vanier + Montreal Road Public Art projects

The Public Art Program will be intermittently rolling out multiple public art commissions with considerations to the Vanier + Montreal Road Public Art Plan. This includes a major Gateway for the community of Vanier.

Community members are consulted on all public artworks through online and in-person engagement initiatives starting this fall. Get involved by visiting Vision Vanier for the latest community engagement initiatives.

Artists can also browse Calls to Artists and Opportunities, or be notified of all opportunities by signing up for our e-newsletter.

The development of the Public Art Plan and upcoming Vanier + Montreal Road Public Art Project is funded by the City of Ottawa Public Art Policy that sets aside one percent of eligible municipal construction budgets for public art. This important part of city planning can spark neighborhood revitalization and adds distinctive character and identity to a space.
