Seattle seeks artist to develop artwork design for new sidewalks

The Office of Arts and Cultural Affairs, in partnership with the Seattle Department of Transportation (SDOT), seeks an artist or artist team to develop and fabricate a single artwork design to inlay at 10 to 15 new sidewalk locations throughout Seattle. 

In 2011, SDOT will build up to 15 blocks of new sidewalks in various parts of the city through the Sidewalk Development Program. Staff from our office and SDOT will determine the locations of the artwork inlays. SDOT will install the inlays beginning summer 2011.

The call is open to professional artists residing in Washington state. The application deadline is 11 p.m., Monday, August 16. The selected artist will receive a commission of $30,000 all-inclusive to design and fabricate the artwork.
