Brief Description

The City of Tacoma, in partnership with the Port of Tacoma, is seeking an artist or artist team to create an iconic Centennial artwork for the Port. The artwork should celebrate and tell the story of the Port, and be informed by the Port’s rich history as a regional economic engine and international connector. The artwork will be located at Fireman’s Park in downtown Tacoma, WA (801 A Street). This opportunity is funded by the Port of Tacoma, and will be managed by the City’s Office of Arts and Cultural Vitality. Applicant(s) must live in Washington State, Oregon, or California. The site, Fireman’s Park, is in downtown Tacoma and has an uninterrupted view of the Port. The park is currently in the first phase of renovation; the artist may have the opportunity to leverage and/or inform future site work. Additionally, the selected artist may have the opportunity to use artifacts from the Port in the artwork.
