UNF issues call to local artists

The University of Niagara Falls Canada (UNF) is seeking local artist proposals for a commissioned art feature in our new downtown Niagara Falls campus.

Located inside the Hatch building at 4342 Queen St., UNF will welcome its first cohort of students on campus in Spring 2024. The university is looking for a local artist to help capture its identity in the form of a large art feature in the new student lounge.

Our new campus takes inspiration from the five Great Lakes, and the immense energy the flows between them. As a junction point between two great bodies of water, Niagara Falls embodies a convergence point of energy from the Great Lakes and has inspired visitors for centuries. As a digitally orientated institution with five innovative programs that provide the skills needed for the jobs of today and tomorrow, UNF will become a convergence point of ideas and innovation.

This is a local competition, open to artists who are 18 years of age or older and have a connection to the Niagara region.

What we’re looking for:

• Something that creates a focal point of excitement and interest for students and guests in the lounge
• An original, standalone design
• Requires minimal maintenance and does not pose any safety risk to the viewing audience

The deadline for submissions is noon on Jan. 31, 2024.
