Seeking artists for roster, artist-in-residence for Seattle City Light

We currently have two calls for artists open! The  application deadline for both calls is 11 p.m., Monday, Aug. 29 (Pacific Daylight Time).

We’re seeking approximately 50 to 75 artists for a juried roster of professional artists eligible for consideration for future public art projects. The projects will be at city utility facilities, parks, in the street right-of-way and at other locations. The roster will include pre-qualified artists who can create free-standing or integrated, site-specific artwork for locations managed by Seattle City LightSeattle Public UtilitiesSeattle Parks and Recreation and other city of Seattle departments.

We’re also seeking an artist-in-residence to highlight Seattle City Light’s conservation projects. The residency will begin this fall. The artist will study the utility’s energy conservation programs and develop a series of innovative projects to bring awareness to conservation.  The artist will then develop his or her own projects and identify conservation-related art projects for other artists.

Both calls are open to individual artists residing in the United States. Click here for more information and for a link to the online application.
