The City of Hamilton is undertaking a public art competition to replace the temporary neighbourhood welcome signs at six of the entrances to the North End Neighbourhood.

A jury of volunteer citizens, stakeholders and artists has reviewed six artists’ submissions and have short-listed three artists’ proposals. Throughout November submissions were open for public comment which the jury will take into consideration for their final decision.

Artists were asked to address the following goal and theme in their proposals:

  • Project goal:to develop neighbourhood-specific signage to emphasize the theme of the community and incorporate public art into the transportation system
  • Theme: “Welcome to the North End – The neighbourhood by the Bay”

The Jury is expected to make a decision in December and installation is to occur in the spring.
