City of Ottawa Art in Public Spaces Commission 

 

Ottawa City Council commissioned four artists and artist groups to install works of art on a derelict open space in the  Lower New Town neighbourhood. The space, although used by groups of people including sex workers and homeless young adults, had become a focus of the council's intent to improve its neglected neighbourhoods.

Funding: Ottawa City Council Arts Awards
