Seeking two artists for Seattle City Light service centers

We’re seeking two artists to create semi-permanent, site-specific installations for Seattle City Light’s North and South Service Centers, hubs for City Light’s work. Each artist will create up to two artworks that should capture the “electricity” of City Light’s activities. The call is open to artists residing in Washington, Oregon, Alaska and British Columbia.

 Application deadline is 11 p.m., Monday, Oct. 17 (Pacific Daylight Time). Go here for more information and a link to the online application.

 The artworks will enhance up to two walls in each of the service center’s auditoriums where City Light employees gather for meetings and training. The artworks may be two- or three-dimensional but must hang on the auditorium walls.

 A panel of arts professionals will review the applications and select five finalists, who will each receive $750 to create proposals. The panel will select two artists, who will each receive $23,500 to create the installations.

 The semi-permanent commissions will be part of City Light’s Portable Works Collection.
