Artists and teams of them are invited to submit their ideas for a public art piece at Hammond Stadium.

They are being invited to enter a juried competition for Canadian artists to create new permanent public artwork. The selected piece will celebrate the history of sport and the unique heritage character of the park.

The stadium was built in 1951 and refurbished in 2014. It includes a community centre, basketball court, tennis court, soccer field and outdoor pool.

The deadline for submissions is Feb. 1, 2016 at 2 p.m. Artists are encouraged to familiarize themselves with the park by attending a non-mandatory site tour led by city staff on Jan. 16, at 1 p.m. Artists will have an opportunity to learn more and ask questions.

The stadium is located at 20601 Westfield Ave., and interested parties will meet at the main entrance of Hammond Community Centre.

See details in full on the B.C. Bid website. The proposed work will utilize the existing parameters of the site, accommodate baseball needs and allow for community engagement as part of the proposal.

The artwork will need to be fabricated and installed by Dec. 30, 2016.

Submissions are to be sent electronically to  submissions@mapleridge.ca or by mail to the attention of Arts and Community Connections Manager, 11995 Haney Pl., Maple Ridge, BC, V2X 6A9.
