Some concerned citizens and Rush fans Neil Peart’s hometown of St. Catharines, Ontario, continue to work on creating memorial places and items. And now they’re looking for help from visual artists.
The city is ready to accept commissions that will be used in some kind of memorial. This is what mayor Walter Sendzik said in a press release: “The Neil Peart memorial is an important project in our community as it celebrates the life of an amazing musician, lyricist, and author who called St. Catharines his hometown during his formative years.
“I am looking forward to seeing the vision artists have for the memorial, which will complement the Neil Peart Pavilion at Lakeside Park, as it will be a beacon for Rush fans to visit our community for years to come.”
Interested? Then you need to pre-qualify. Once the city is satisfied that you have the chops, you can start working on your art. When the entry for deadlines closes, The Neil Peart Commemorative Task Force confer the commission. Funding will come from here.
