Late last year, we invited Canadian artists to participate in our national art competition by submitting their creative concepts for two installations that will be permanently displayed in TELUS Garden, our beautiful and environmentally friendly office tower currently under construction in the heart of downtown Vancouver.
The response by artists, designers and arts enthusiasts online and offline was incredibly positive and in just a few weeks, we received more than 50 high-quality submissions that truly showcase the amazing diversity and immense talent of Canada’s arts community. I am thrilled to share that after reviewing each submission against all criteria, the TELUS Garden art competition jury has selected four finalists to move to the second phase of the competition.
TELUS has a proud history of supporting arts and culture in our local communities and we are extremely excited about the opportunity to partner with two Canadian artists whose works of art will complement and elevate TELUS Garden’s avant-garde design.
I want to thank each of our participants for your thoughtful and inspiring submissions.
