The Minoru Civic Precinct Public Art Plan, endorsed by Council on October 14, 2014, aims to reflect and enhance the unique services and programs offered in the Minoru Centre for Active Living and the surrounding Civic Precinct.
Two of the major commissions outlined in the plan are currently underway:
The Richmond Public Art Program is seeking an artist or artist team to create a site-responsive artwork for the entry and arrival zone of the new Minoru Centre for Active Living.
View the Call to Artists at Call to Artists. Deadline to apply is Thursday August 31, 2017 at 4:00 p.m. PST.

Errant Rain Cloud by Germaine Koh and Gordon Hicks is a whimsical white cloud that will hang above the leisure pool in the new Minoru Centre for Active Living. The public artwork will mimic the natural atmospheric rain cycle and will periodically produce a gentle rainfall for pool users to enjoy. As an experiential artwork, Errant Rain Cloud will remind us of the natural cycles that surround us.
The Minoru Civic Precinct Public Art Plan recommends several opportunities for community public artwork and programming during the construction and post-completion stages of the Minoru Centre for Active Living.
