We’re partnering with Seattle Parks and Recreation and Seattle Public Utilities (SPU) to issue a call for two artists to complete public art projects at two new reservoir parks: West Seattle Reservoir at Westcrest Park and Maple Leaf Reservoir Park. The artists will be selected from a single pool of applicants, and each will work on one of the park projects.
The artists will collaborate with design consultants and city staff to create engaging areas or installations that are integrated into the parks’ design, enhance the experience of visiting the parks, and promote discovery or define a space or activity within the parks.
The call is open to professional artists residing in the United States. Application deadline is 11 p.m., Thursday, March 11. The budget for each project is $150,000, all-inclusive.
