Civic Square Fence
The Seattle Office of Arts & Culture, in partnership with the Department of Finance and Administrative Services and Triad Development, is seeking three artists or artist teams to create large-scale murals for the construction fence surrounding the Civic Square future development site between Third and Fourth avenues and Cherry and James streets in downtown Seattle. Each mural location is a side of the fence, one city-block long and approximately 200 linear feet. Each artist or artist team will paint his or her mural directly on the fence; the image should reflect Seattle's vibrancy in some way; its work, cultural life, history, or commitment to sustainability.
Six finalists will be commissioned to prepare proposals; three artists or artist teams will be selected to create a mural.
Eligibility: Open to professional artists living within the United States or Canada.
Budget: Six artists will each receive $750 to develop and present his or her proposals, and three artists or artist teams will each receive $25,000, all inclusive for time and materials, to create his/her mural. If the selected artist or artist team is from outside the Seattle area, expenses for travel and lodging will be negotiated.
