The Seattle Office of Arts & Culture in partnership with Seattle Center, is seeking artists to develop temporary artworks for the 2017 Poetry Garden Art Series on the Seattle Center campus. The theme for the year’s series of artworks is Seattle Center Festál Turns 20.
This call is open to professional artists residing in the United States. Applicants must be over 18 years old and interested in working collaboratively in public settings. Applicants are not eligible if they have received a permanently sited public or private art commission of more than $10,000.
Each selected artist will receive $1,000, inclusive of all fees, including Washington State Sales and Use Tax (9.6%.), to design, fabricate and install the artwork.
SCOPE OF WORK
Working with Seattle Center and the Office of Arts & Culture, four selected artists will design and develop small-scale temporary artworks to be installed on the Poetry garden fence, (e.g., printed vinyl, wood, works on canvas, etc.) for three-month periods in 2017 on the Seattle Center campus. Artists are encouraged to be creative with materials; artworks that intentionally deteriorate over time will be considered for this project. The artworks should not cause damage to property but should be secured in a way that considers prevention of theft or vandalism.
