      The City of Seattle Office of Arts & Culture (ARTS) maintains a Public Art Artist Roster that selects and places artists for new projects. Artists are invited to apply for our upcoming public art projects. All experience levels are welcome.

      The Public Art Artist Roster will be used for commissioning new, original, and site-responsive public artwork. ARTS is seeking a diverse range of artists to work with us and various City of Seattle Departments (Seattle City Light, Seattle Department of Transportation, Seattle Public Utilities, and Seattle Parks and Recreation). The Public Art Artist Roster is the primary method for selecting newly commissioned artists.

      Read the Guidelines


      • You must reside in the United States or a U.S. Territory.
      • You must be an artist or collaborative group that is independent. An arts organization, company, or program is not eligible.
      • You must produce or present artwork that is relevant to the community and accessible to the public.
      • Images submitted for review must be your own original work. If it’s a team project, your role in the project must be clearly defined in the image description.
      • You must be 18 years of age or older. Collaborative groups must be composed of artists who are 18 or older.
      • You may submit only one application.


      Public art commissions will be up to $500,000. Each new project will include information on the specific project budget and scope of work.
