CONTEST: Broccolini is Looking for a Quebec Artist to Create an Original Work for the New Maison de Radio-Canada
MONTREAL, Dec. 09, 2019 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Broccolini, the proud builder of the new Maison de Radio-Canada, announces the launch of a contest to select a Quebec artist to create a public work of art. The work will be installed on the wall of the main studio (or in front of it) located along Alexandre-DeSève Street, adjacent to the Place Radio-Canada public space. The wall has a surface area of 665m² that can be covered in part or completely. This is a unique opportunity for an artist to contribute to the identity of the neighbourhood and to the artistic effervescence of Quebec.

This contest is part of a greater effort designed to cultivate a sense of belonging among citizens, while adding a touch of beauty to the space. Broccolini also hopes that this competition will help contribute to the promotion of local art and artists.Any professional artist who is a Canadian citizen or permanent resident, and who has been living in Quebec for at least one year, is invited to submit their candidacy. All contest details are available at the following address: broccolini.com/contest.
