Private donor provides $1 million to Brock University for art commission

TORONTO, Jan. 30, 2013 /CNW/ - On behalf of a major donor and Brock University, Cultural Asset Management Group (CAM Group) is seeking a Canadian artist to produce a $1 million work of art to commemorate Isaac Brock in time for the 50th anniversary of Brock University. The St Catharines, Ontario university was founded in 1964. 

"CAM Group is proud to play a role in honouring Isaac Brock, one of the founding fathers of Canada.  This major commission is a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity for artists to make visible the founding dynamic and legend of a nation. This commission is at least as much about the future as it is about the past. Brock University and its generous donor are calling upon and significantly investing in Canadian artists to honour and celebrate our history", said Shelley Falconer, CEO of Toronto based, Cultural Asset Management Group.

Brock University has issued a formal Request for Proposals laying out the key parameters for artist selection and the work itself. The artist will be selected by April 1, 2013 to complete the work of art by May 2014. Any artist who would like to be sent the RFP, should send their email address and other contact information to the project art consultant, Cultural Asset Management Group. Phone: (905) 415-2826 info@camgroup.ca (www.camgroup.ca).
