Calling professional artists, worldwide: If you have a penchant for large public art projects, and you also have a preference for, say, $1 million, here’s the opportunity you’ve been looking for: “The Seattle Office of Arts & Culture seeks an artist or artist team for the public piers of the Seattle Central Waterfront. These piers will be rebuilt as part of Waterfront Seattle, a large-scale project to replace the Alaskan Way Viaduct with 26 acres of new public space, streets, parks, and buildings.” The budget for this commission is about $1,000,000, “inclusive of design, fabrication, delivery, installation, travel, fees, taxes, and other project-related costs,” sez the SOA&C.
Deadline to apply is Dec. 19. Info here.
The project is funded by Seattle Department of Transportation 1% for Art funds generated by the reconstruction of the Elliott Bay Seawall.
