The Indigenous Art Committee at the I.H. Asper School of Business is seeking proposals for an art project to be installed on the main floor atrium stairwell in the Drake Building. Two dimensional or low relief work will be considered, including murals with permanent paint or other wall-mounted media.

“The inclusion of Indigenous art within Drake Centre’s welcoming atrium will serve to honour and affirm the identities of Indigenous peoples upon whose land the university is situated. We hope to receive proposals that reflect a spirit of self-determination and that inspires reconciliation between Indigenous and non-Indigenous peoples.” said Peter Pomart, IBEP Program Director and co-chair of the Indigenous Art Committee.

The selected art should reflect regional Indigenous identities and cultures, with preference given to artists with Indigenous roots in Manitoba. Incorporating Indigenous art is one of the ways the Asper School of Business is showing its commitment to provide an inclusive and respectful environment that honours Indigenous perspectives and embraces diversity.
