The art collection at Four Seasons Toronto has been curated to showcase some of Canada’s many wonderful artists and craftspeople. The collection is meant to intrigue and inspire — with the overall theme being a subtle and contemporary whisper to that of the “Canadiana”. We would like to further this intention by featuring the work of emerging Canadian artists in a rotating art installation in d|bar.

All submissions are to be received at Four Seasons Corporate Home Offices no later than February 19, 2019 at 3:00pm. Please email to kai.fejer@fourseasons.com

*Participants in the competition will be recent graduates and faculty of OCAD.
* The challenge: to capture the heart and spirit of our beloved Toronto, Ontario, Canada.
*Entries are restricted only by the proportion of the screen.
*The artwork may be representational, abstract, or conceptual; it can be adapted from a previous work by the artist or may be an entirely new piece. It may also be time-based media. In all cases, it must be appropriate for this venue (with 1 day and 2 night time concepts).
*The artwork may be stills in sequence or a reel on a loop.
*The competition will be a 2-stage jury. The jury will select a final short-list from all competition entries.
*Short-listed artists will each receive $2,000 to finalize their proposed piece in 3 versions: 1 day and 2 night time concepts. Four Seasons will have ownership, including all copyright herein, of the Artist’s Artwork installed at the media wall in d|bar as a result of being selected as part of the short-list.
