Dundas Driving Park Public Art Project
Congratulations to Leslie Drysdale and Sandor Monos on being awarded the commission for their proposal "Racing Carousel".
A volunteer jury of citizens and city staff met to review thirteen proposals received from artists for artistic and technical merit, and response to context. They chose the four highest scoring proposals as finalists to present to the public for comment. This input helped inform the jury when they selected the successful proposal.

A stakeholder focus group and public charrette were held in the spring of 2009. The purpose of these events was to gain knowledge and insight directly from the community, determine appropriate locations for art in the park, and possible themes that artists competing for the commission will be asked to address in their work. This information was used in judging the appropriateness of the proposed pieces in relation to the community. The volunteer jury was comprised of citizens representing local community groups and arts organizations.
Second Call for Artists
As per the public consultation held in 2009, a second smaller project is planned for the park with a project budget of $100,000. This project will be asking artists to address the themes of history and memory in the context of Dundas Driving Park.
