Art Strategy for CAMH Redevelopment Art is an important part of CAMH’s ongoing Queen Street Redevelopment Project. In the latest buildings a centerpiece artwork sets the tone for many of the visual aspects throughout, helping to create an interconnected and welcoming environment for patients and staff. With the next phase of redevelopment (Phase 1C) in 2017, the CAMH Art Selection Panel (CASP) put a call out to local artists for letters of interest. There will be 10 architecturally-integrated, public-facing pieces selected, along with 25 stand-alone pieces for corridors and waiting areas.
Preferred proponent selected for CAMH Phase 1C project Infrastructure Ontario (IO) and CAMH selected Plenary Health CAMH after
extensive evaluations following an open, fair and competitive request
for proposals process that began in February 2016. Plenary has been selected as the preferred proponent to design, build, finance and maintain the next phase of CAMH’s redevelopment at the Queen Street Site.
