Proposals sought for temporary projects at Occidental Square

ARTSparks—a partnership between Seattle Parks and Recreation and the Office of Arts and Cultural Affairs—is seeking proposals for art projects for Occidental Square park in June through September. All arts disciplines, collaborations or simultaneous projects are welcome to apply.

Projects must activate the park for a least one week in duration and may extend to several weeks. Applicants must have demonstrated experience in producing public arts events or installations. Priority will be given to applicants with experience producing programs in outdoor, public settings in collaboration with one or more sponsoring organizations.

The goal of ARTSparks is to help bring a lively and creative atmosphere to our downtown parks, converting them into showcases for the imagination where, simply by entering the park, people are encouraged to experience, question, interact with, investigate, and respond to art – for free and as a natural part of daily downtown life.

Proposals are due 5 p.m., Friday May 10 (Pacific Daylight Time). Go to the here for details and application guidelines.
