Description

OPPORTUNITY
The City of Bellevue seeks to purchase portable artwork that exemplifies the mission of the Bellevue Art Collection. The maximum purchase price of selected artwork(s) per artist is $2,400. This call is open to all visual artists living in King, Pierce and Snohomish counties. The deadline for consideration is August 17, 2020. Purchased artworks will be included in the Bellevue Art Collection and will eventually be located throughout City-owned and publicly accessible buildings and offices. The future locations of the purchased artworks is at the City of Bellevue’s discretion.

BELLEVUE ART COLLECTION’S MISSION
The City of Bellevue seeks to be a vital platform for cultural exchange and creative inspiration. The City turns to living artists to enrich the collective experience of Bellevue’s public places through permanent commissions and a growing collection of movable artworks funded through the Public Art Program. A segment of the collection is devoted to artworks that raise the discourse on the defining aspects of Bellevue’s civic life, exploring the diverse identities of our residents, converging cultures, international connections, technological currents and interplay between nature and the urban experience that make Bellevue’s environment unique. Bellevue’s art collection helps document the dynamic moments and complexities of Bellevue’s cultural life and is an important resource for future generations.

BACKGROUND
Purchased portable art will join a small but growing collection of portable artworks within the Bellevue Art Collection. The current collection is comprised of over 70 permanently sited and integrated artworks and portable works by acclaimed artists such as Lois Graham, Judy Onofrio and Jae Hyo Lee and coming artworks by artists Marc Fornes and Po Shu Wang. Most of these artworks are sculptures. The goal of growing the collection of portable artworks is to diversify the collection by adding a range of visual art mediums and artistic voices. Portable art will also increase the number of artworks accessible in city-owned buildings in Bellevue neighborhoods.

BUDGET
A total of $24,000 will be used to purchase portable artworks with a price of $2,400 or less per artwork. Only one selected artwork will be purchased from an artist unless the total purchase price of the artworks adds up to $2,400 or less. Sales tax is in addition to the purchase price. Please note that the purchase will not be finalized until Bellevue staff has an opportunity to view the artwork in-person and the Arts Commission votes to approve the purchase.

If electronic artwork is submitted, all equipment should be included with the artwork purchase price and easily moved and installed in a variety of locations and environments in order to be considered. Artists that need to arrange shipping will need to include that as a separate line item for each artwork on the image description sheet. Shipping charges plus purchase of the artwork will need to fit below the maximum price of $2,400.

ELIGIBILITY
This call is open to all active professional visual artists in King, Pierce and Snohomish counties in Washington State. Artists must be able to deliver or arrange for delivery of artwork to Bellevue. Bellevue is a very diverse community. Diverse artists are highly encouraged to apply.

WHAT WE’RE LOOKING FOR
Available two-dimensional visual art (drawings, mixed media, painting, photography, prints, and textiles), electronic art (digital, film, new media, and video) and small three-dimensional artwork (no larger than 18” in any direction) will be considered for purchase at this time. The artwork will enter a rotating portable works collection and artworks may need to be moved by one person. Artists may submit up to ten images of available work or up to five links if submitting electronic artworks. If two-dimensional, Bellevue will arrange and pay for framing, listening to advice from the artist once the artwork has been purchased. Framing, hanging, and presentation costs will be managed completely by Bellevue staff and is not a part of the $2,400 maximum purchase price of an artwork.
