Art proposals sought for Pioneer Square park

Artists are invited to submit proposals to ARTSPARKS — a  program designed to enliven Pioneer Square  this summer by bringing art in all its forms to Occidental Park  to create a public space where art and life entwine and art serves as a vehicle for positive and social change.

ARTSPARKS is a collaboration between the Office, 4Culture and Seattle Parks and Recreation and is part of the Downtown Parks Renaissance Initiative, an effort to make downtown Seattle parks lively, safe and welcoming public spaces. Home to a high concentration of art galleries and artist studios, the Pioneer Square neighborhood has a special role in the cultural life of Seattle. 

All creative proposals are sought including, but not limited to, street theater, dance, temporary sculpture, environmental installations, music and visual art.

Applicants must have demonstrated experience in producing public arts events or installations. Maximum available funding is $2,000 per week for a 10- to 15-week program (June to September) that features multiple temporary art projects.

Application deadline is Friday, March 12. Download the application and guidelines here.
