Together Center is a nonprofit human services center supporting Seattle’s Eastside since 1991. The 20+ nonprofit providers located at our campus in Redmond help thousands of people annually. With one trip to Together Center, community members can access a full range of supports including: health care; dental care; mental health counseling; case management; addiction support; behavioral health; advocacy services; childcare resources; disability services; therapies for children of diverse abilities; economic assistance; job training; and cultural navigation for immigrants, among others.
We are looking for emerging and established artists to create a site-specific welcoming entry and donor recognition wall in our lobby. Artwork will beautify and enliven the project and convey the welcoming and inclusive message of Together Center while also thanking major donors whose gifts have made the new facility possible.
This call is open to all artists living and working in Washington state. Please read the application requirements carefully. Artists are asked to submit statements of interest based on past art experience. Relevance of the applicant’s letter of interest and demonstrated ability to create and execute art projects will be considered in the selection. Must welcome and participate in a community engagement phase during development of artwork. Black, Indigenous, and people of color (BIPOC) artists are encouraged to apply. We are not looking for artwork proposals at this phase of the project. The deadline for applications is 5 p.m. (Pacific Standard Time) August 30, 2022.
Together Center is under construction on an expanded, dynamic new nonprofit center with the addition of 280 units of family-focused affordable housing on the upper levels. Working with our human service provider partners, we have designed exciting community aspects for the new Together Center including a welcoming public lobby, suites in which to best provide services, communal teaching kitchen, multicultural event and gathering spaces, a social-purpose coworking area, an indoor/outdoor lounge for nonprofit worker respite, and a small community art gallery.
Together Center will select a finalist to refine their concept, participate in a community engagement phase, and create a final proposal for approval before proceeding with fabrication and installation of the artwork. Installation will be coordinated in early to mid-2023 upon completion of the Project.
Eventual artwork proposals from selected artists will need to consider safety and visibility.
