Artscape Atelier and The Daniels Corporation are pleased to announce an amazing opportunity for artists. Local artists are invited to submit proposals for the design, fabrication, packaging and delivery of welcome gifts for over 1,300 new condominium owners at Daniels City of the Arts and DuEast Tower in Regent Park. The Daniels Corporation will gift these artworks or artisanal items to new condominium owners as a token of gratitude.
Artists are invited to submit proposals for an artistic gift idea, and we are open to new and meaningful interpretations of what form these gifts can take. The gift item may be purely aesthetic or reflect some element of the local community. To meet the needs for a scope of over 1,300 works, this opportunity will be available to up to 3 selected applicants. More details are available on the Call for Artists.
