      Deadline to apply: November 7, 2016

      The Seattle Office of Arts & Culture in partnership with Seattle Department of Transportation (SDOT), seeks an artist to develop site-specific artwork and design elements for the Madison Street Bus Rapid Transit Project (BRT). The selected artist will work with SDOT and SDOT consultants from design through construction of the new BRT.

      This call is open to professional artists or artist teams residing in Oregon or Washington. Artists with no prior public art experience are not eligible to apply. The Office of Arts & Culture encourages diversity in its collection. Artists whose work is well-represented in the city’s collection are eligible to apply, but the artist selection panel will consider artistic diversity as one factor in the selection process. Students are not eligible to apply.

      The total artwork project budget is estimated to be $125,000. The total project budget is all inclusive of travel expenses, taxes and other project costs.

      The artist will work with project design consultants, SDOT, community representatives and the Office of Arts & Culture to develop permanent public art and design elements for the Madison Bus Rapid Transit project. The project will improve overall mobility in a dense and rapidly developing corridor that spans diverse neighborhood districts from Center City to First Hill, Capitol Hill, the Central District, and east of the area to the Madison Valley and Madison Park.

      Working closely with the SDOT design team and consultants, the commissioned artist will develop artwork for one or two designated sites:

      • A green space at 14th Avenue, Pike Street & Madison Street. The site at 14th Avenue and Madison Street will convert a portion of public street pavement to pervious green space.  The space may include use as a green stormwater biofiltration area
      • A curb bulb at Union Street, 12th Avenue & Madison Street

      11p.m., Monday, November 7, 2016 (Pacific Daylight Time).
