The City of Coquitlam is focused on identifying and increasing opportunities for local artists to display their two-dimensional visual art pieces in civic facilities. This pilot program will showcase the talents of local artists, promotes dialogue and cultural awareness by integrating more art into the community. It also aligns with Coquitlam’s Arts, Culture & Heritage Strategic Plan (2015-2030).

2024 Themes

This year's exhibition themes, "Inclusion” and “Growth," support the City’s commitment to fostering equity, diversity and inclusion.  These themes inspire dialogue and foster an understanding of the significance art plays in our community.

Applications are now closed for the 2024/2025 intake period.

Special thanks to the City of Coquitlam Culture Services Advisory Committee for its initial research, and the City of Port Coquitlam, City of North Vancouver, Coquitlam Public Library and Place des Arts for sharing information and materials that have informed this program.
