City of Ottawa Art Collection

About the collection

After amalgamation in 2001, artworks from the Region of Ottawa–Carleton and 11 municipalities were brought together as one art collection. Today, the City of Ottawa Art Collection is comprised of more than 2,700 artworks created by over 745 artists including Shahla Bahrami, Jennifer Dickson, Lorraine Gilbert, Adrian Göllner, Yousuf Karsh, Farouk Kaspaules and Cynthia O’Brien.

Artwork from this collection is presented at over 150 public sites across Ottawa! Library branches, community centres, parks, playgrounds, employment centres, transit stations and City Hall display artwork for residents.

The City of Ottawa collects artworks that demonstrate creativity and innovation. New artworks are added to the collection by purchase, donation and commission based on a peer assessment committee’s recommendation. Public art commissions accompany major capital projects such as Ottawa on the Move and Confederation Line. By presenting art in public spaces, the City of Ottawa Art Collection enriches communities, supports local artists and forms a visual art history of the Ottawa area.

Public art

Public art brings colour, beauty and imagination to neighbourhoods all over town. Whether it’s a mural at a Transitway station or a sculpture along the sidewalk, public art has become part of the fabric of this city - inspiring residents and visitors alike. Since 1985, the City of Ottawa Art Collection has been cared for by the Public Art Program. The Public Art Program is committed to building livable communities by integrating artwork into everyday public spaces. Each year, recent additions to the City of Ottawa Art Collection are exhibited at a City-run gallery. After the exhibition closes, artworks are installed at public sites across Ottawa.

Deadline: Monday, April 23, 2018

Information meeting: Tuesday, March 20, 2018 from 6 to 8 pm
Karsh-Masson Gallery, 110 Laurier Ave West.
A short presentation will be followed by a question and answer period.

The City of Ottawa invites professional artists and their representatives to offer existing artworks for purchase. Proposals are reviewed by a peer assessment committee and selected artworks will become part of the City of Ottawa Art Collection.

About the program

Direct Purchase is a competitive program for participants to offer artwork for purchase to the City of Ottawa. More than 2,500 artworks are reviewed each year. Direct Purchase is a two-tiered process:

At the first tier, all eligible applications are reviewed by a peer assessment committee and a short-list of artworks is recommended. All applicants are informed of the peer assessment committee’s recommendations.

For the second tier in July, applicants with short-listed artworks are asked to deliver artworks to the City of Ottawa for review by the peer assessment committee. A final recommendation of artworks is made at this time. Applicants are responsible for arranging delivery and pick-up and for all related costs.

All eligible applications are reviewed by a peer assessment committee based on artistic merit, regional importance and innovation, and conservation and maintenance requirements. Recommendations for purchase are made by a peer assessment committee based on available funds. The composition of each committee aims to balance representation of artistic specialization, practice, style, and philosophy, as well as fair representation of official languages, gender, geographic areas, and culture-specific communities. Peer assessment committee members are chosen based on their knowledge and experience, fair and objective opinions, ability to articulate ideas, and ability to work in a team environment. Members of the committee change for every program. City employees are responsible for the selection of peer assessment committee members. If you are interested in participating as a peer assessment committee member, please contact us.

The City of Ottawa supports cultural activity that is inclusive of Ottawa's diverse community, including people from diverse ancestries, abilities, ages, countries of origin, cultures, genders, incomes, languages, races and sexual orientations. The City of Ottawa recognizes the Algonquin Anishinabe Nation as Ottawa’s Indigenous Host Nation. On February 28, 2018, City Council approved a Reconciliation Plan in response to the Truth and Reconciliation Commission. One of the commitments made is to acquire and display more art from Indigenous artists into the City of Ottawa Art Collection. Applications from artists and representatives of diverse origins, First Nations, Inuit and Métis are welcome and encouraged. The City of Ottawa recognizes both official languages as having the same rights, status and privileges.

Personal information in your submission is collected under the authority of the City Council approved Public Art Policy. Personal information will only be used for evaluating your submission and administering the City of Ottawa Public Art Program. City of Ottawa employees and peer assessment committee members are required to treat both the content of submissions and the deliberations of the committee as confidential.
