Seattle seeks artist to develop artwork for King Street Station

We’re seeking an artist or artist team to create a temporary, site-specific public art project for the new Jackson Street Plaza at King Street Station. The station is located in Seattle’s Pioneer Square neighborhood at South Jackson Street and Third Avenue South.

The artwork should enliven the space and offer passersby a new and energized view of the historic train station. Possible approaches may include projections or light, participatory or interactive artworks, and/or a temporary installation in the plaza.

The opportunity is open to established professional artists living in Washington, Oregon, Idaho, Montana, California, Alaska, or British Columbia, Canada. The application deadline is 11 p.m., Wednesday, April 27. The total project budget is $35,000, all–inclusive of travel expenses, taxes, and all project costs for design, fabrication/production, installation and removal of artwork.

A link to the online application and guidelines is available here.

The project is in partnership with the Seattle Department of Transportation.
