Seeking an artist for Burke-Gilman Trail
We’re seeking an artist or artist team to create a permanent, multi-site outdoor artwork at select points along the Burke-Gilman Trail. The artist will create a durable, permanent outdoor artwork for two to five select locations along the trail. Each part of the installation will enliven its location on the trail and collectively create a larger cohesive artwork.
Established professional artists living in Washington state are eligible to apply. The budget for the project is $80,000 all-inclusive to design, fabricate and install the artwork. Application deadline is 11 p.m., Monday, Aug. 1.
Go here for the guidelines and a link to the online application.
The artwork is funded through Seattle Department of Transportation 1% for Art Funds.
