  • Brief Description

    Artists are invited to submit an application for upcoming public art projects with the City of Seattle. The Office of Arts & Culture maintains a public art roster that selects and places artists for each new project. All experience levels welcome and deadline to apply is March 6, 2024, 5 p.m. Pacific.

    The Public Art Artist Roster is the primary method we select artists for public art commissions with budgets of up to $500,000. Each new project will include information on the specific project budget and scope of work. The types of public art projects that are commissioned through the roster include:

    -Permanent artwork that is site-responsive and/or site-integrated
    -Temporary artwork
    -Design-only artwork
    -Creative community engagement/planning artist
    -Digital and new technology artwork

    New artwork commissioned through the 1% for Arts program integrates artworks and ideas into a variety of public settings working alongside City agency capital project initiatives.
