(Please note: See legend for Town acquisitions shown above here


The Town of Riverview invites local artists to submit their application for consideration in the 2022 Art Procurement Program (APP) before April 21, 2022. The citizen-led APP jury will select and purchase artwork on the Town’s behalf to add to the Town’s art collection.

If you are considering submitting artwork, please review the APP Policy to ensure you have met the requirements prior to making your submission. A completed APP Application Form must be attached to any artwork submitted for consideration.


To apply, artists must be a Riverview resident for at least twelve consecutive months. Artist eligibility is not reliant on an artist’s professional status but rather on the artwork. No work by any member of the APP jury or their immediate family will be considered for purchase.

Art acquisition

The Town of Riverview will purchase artwork from the works submitted for this call. The artwork must be deemed appropriate for the Town’s art collection based on the selection criteria established by the APP policy. The artwork will be displayed in Riverview Town Hall’s Council Chambers for up to two years following acquisition and then may be relocated to another Town-owned public building.


Each artist may submit one piece of work. Artwork must be original and be suitably framed and ready to hang. Art that is not accompanied by the APP application form will not be considered.
