For the sixth consecutive year, the Société de la Place des Arts is holding its Ephemeral Art Work contest for the pool located on the south side of the Esplanade.
Artists in the fields of visual arts, architecture, design and landscape architecture who wish to participate can submit their proposals until 4 p.m., March 31st.
Projects must meet several criteria: must be ephemeral since the work is intended only for the summer season, from May 23rd to October 10th, 2008; withstand water because the pool will be in operation with its 16 water jets throughout the summer; work within a $12,000 budget which includes fees, materials and installation.
The selection committee (as yet not formed) will judge the submitted projects on several criteria, particularly originality, integration into the site, attractiveness, its sturdiness and durability as well as public safety.
