    The Office of Arts & Culture (ARTS) and Seattle Parks and Recreation (PARKS) are seeking artists to create temporary art installations or social practice activities for selected Seattle parks to activate and engage their surrounding communities.

    ARTS is looking for up to seven artists/artist teams that are interested in engaging with the community and creating artworks or social practice activities that are culturally responsive. Artists who have experience working with residents from historically underrepresented communities including communities of color, immigrant, and refugee communities to develop their artwork are encouraged to apply.

    Eligibility and Funding
    This call is open to artists living in Washington State who have a documented track record of making art and are interested in creating art in public places. Applicants must be over 18 years old and interested in working collaboratively in public settings.

    Each selected artist will receive $4,500, inclusive of all fees including design development for final proposal, materials, installation, WA state sales and use taxes, insurance, and all associated project costs. Selected artists will receive 40% of the total commission upon acceptance of the final artwork proposal, 40% percent after documented installation of the artwork, and the remaining 20% after documented de-installation of artwork, photo documentation and a brief project summary have been delivered.
