      The Seattle Office of Arts & Culture (ARTS), seeking visual art exhibition proposals to fill Seattle City Hall galleries (Lobby Gallery and the Anne Focke Gallery). Completed in 2003, City Hall is the heart of the Civic Center – a kind of cultural café. The Office of Arts & Culture facilitates the ongoing presentation of art at City Hall through a rotating exhibition series in galleries located on two floors. City Hall is home to the Mayor’s Office, City Council and several other City departments, and is also a lively hub of events, protests and meetings throughout the facility.


      We encourage proposals from Seattle-based community groups, and artist groups. Exhibitions should reflect the City’s commitment to racial and social justice, the diversity of Seattle’s communities, and emphasize the people, places and character of Seattle. Individual artists should not apply unless specifically supported by a sponsoring organization and the work to be shown has great significance to Seattle. Individual artists may apply as a part of a group show. We will give special consideration to exhibitions with enough work to fill both the lobby gallery and Anne Focke Gallery (typically between 30 and 50 works that are framed and ready to install). Exhibition spaces are equipped to display two-dimensional materials. Three-dimensional exhibitions will only be considered if applicants commit to furnishing all necessary display cases. We do not accept video and media works.
