New public art selected for Greely Village Park

community art winner

Ottawa-based artist Tim desClouds has been awarded the public art commission for Greely Village Park. His winning project, A CELEBRATION OF COMMUNITY, features two large whirligig-weathervane sculptures. The sculptures will sit on the main pathway, inviting visitors to discover the park grounds. Made of metal, the artwork will rise 20 to 24 feet, with each weathervane spanning an area of 8 square feet. Seating will be built in at the base of each sculpture.

In addition to public art, the new park will provide a full-sized soccer field, skateboard and BMX facilities, tennis, basketball, junior and senior playground areas, gazebo, seating, open space play zones, landscaping, naturalized planting and walking trails. The artwork and Phase 2 of the park project are expected to be complete in late 2016.

The City of Ottawa launched a two-stage competition for public art at Greely Village Park in March 2015. A public open house and an online survey invited comments from the public. The peer assessment committee selected A CELEBRATION OF COMMUNITY based on factors such as artistic merit, durability of materials, the artists’ experience, comments from the public and the project’s engagement of park users.

Artist and retired Canterbury High School art teacher Tim desClouds is no stranger to public art. His projects can be seen on Bank Street in the Glebe, and in McNabb Park at Bronson and Gladstone Avenues. His work is also located at the Orleans Branch of the Ottawa Public Library and at the Garry J. Armstrong Long Term Care Centre.  Born in Montreal, desClouds earned a BFA from York University (Toronto) and a BEd from Queen’s University (Kingston).
