Call to Sḵwx̱wú7mesh Úxwumixw (Squamish Nation) artists
The District invites graphic design artists from the Sḵwx̱wú7mesh Úxwumixw (Squamish Nation) to create contemporary Sḵwx̱wú7mesh art, which will be featured on street banners in local parks, business districts, and along the Centennial Seawalk and Spirit Trail.
One artist or a team of artists will be selected to develop a creative design that reflects cultural aspects of the Sḵwx̱wú7mesh Úxwumixw.
Bold and simple designs are encouraged, so the art is visible on street banners.
Submission deadline: Monday, January 10, 2022, at 2 p.m.
