UNF issues call to Indigenous artists  

During National Indigenous History Month, the University of Niagara Falls Canada (UNF) is happy to announce it is seeking Indigenous artist proposals for a new commissioned art feature.  

The artwork will be installed inside the Lake Erie Library, located on the second floor of UNF’s downtown Niagara Falls campus. It will be prominently situated near the entrance, visible to all visitors as they enter the library.  

UNF’s campus is situated in the traditional territory of the Haudenosaunee, Hatiwendaronk, and Anishinaabe peoples. Many other First Nations, Métis, and Inuit peoples call the region home.  

The university is committed to building relationships based on respect, reciprocity, and reconciliation as its staff, faculty, and students work, learn, and gather on this land.  

The call is open to Indigenous artists who are 18 years or older, with a connection to Ontario. UNF is looking forward to welcoming submissions that reflect Indigenous culture, heritage, and perspectives.  

Ideal submissions would be something that creates a focal point of interest for students and guests entering the library; an original, standalone design; and something that would be created off-site and installed on campus. It would, ideally, require minimal maintenance once installed.  

The deadline for submissions is noon on July 10, 2024.
