Goal: Metrolinx envisions the new West Harbour as a model urban station that will be a welcoming gateway to Hamilton; one that successfully integrates with and contributes to surrounding neighbourhoods. The public art piece for the station plaza should be evocative and engage the public imagination, convey a positive message, evoke civic pride, and help animate the plaza.

In keeping with the Metrolinx goal statement, the focus group felt that the work should encourage interaction.

Theme: The work should consider the rich cultural, physical and historical context of the area and address one or more of the following themes:

  • Migration and mobility
  • The cultural diversity of immigration to the city
  • Connections: physical, visual or implied between modes of transportation, communities, landmarks, the past and present etc.
  • The natural and cultural features of the site and its surroundings

Review the proposal booklets, see the maquettes (models) and provide comments in person at the following location:

The Tourism Hamilton Visitors Information Centre
28 James Street North, Hamilton (the Lister Building)
Monday to Friday from 10 am to 4 pm
Saturday & Sunday from 10 am to 3 pm

Please provide your comments on or before October 9, 2015.
