Call for Submissions

Blue Mountain Resort invites professional artists (including artist teams) to submit proposals for a large-scale, outdoor, three-dimensional public artwork to be displayed at the top of Blue Mountain. The artwork should capture an appreciation and celebration for Indigenous cultures and communities.

The selected artwork will stand as a four-season instalment where guests can gather to reflect on our relationship to the land, with appreciation of its original stewards, the Indigenous Peoples of Canada.


The selected artist will be awarded a prize of $5,000 as well as commissioning for the piece. The work, including commissioning, installation and infrastructure, should be within the scope of about $30,000 depending on the piece.


All submissions will be reviewed by a panel including Blue Mountain leadership and employees, local community members and citizens from the Indigenous community.
