The First Hill Improvement Association (FHIA) seeks an artist to create public art for First Hill Park, a Seattle Parks Department neighborhood park. The Park is undergoing improvements in response to a public process conducted by FHIA in conjunction with Departments of Neighborhoods and Parks. The selected artist or team will collaborate with the park design team led by the landscape architecture firm Site Workshop and the project will be reviewed by the Seattle Department of Parks for long-term maintenance. Reflecting comments heard in public process, the design team is interested in artwork that responds to the unique 1910 story of two bear cubs which were raised as pets at the Stimson Green Mansion next door. For more about this story, see “Wild Life in First Hill” link is included below. The successful art element should be playful, engaging, and have cross-generational appeal. First Hill park is approximately 122' x 72'.
