Brief Description

ARTS seeks an artist/artist team to develop a permanent artwork that is rich, rigorous, deeply considered, relevant, and site specific. The city is committed to excellence in environmental stewardship and in sustainable building practices. The selected artist will work with ARTS, SPU, SCWQP coordinating artist, and project design consultants to develop permanent, outdoor, site specific artwork for the site locations. The artwork should be a two-part sculptural artwork on both sides of the Ship Canal that reference and relate to each other. It should also relate to foot and cyclist traffic on the neighboring Burke Gilman Trail. The artwork on each side of the canal should contribute to placemaking and take into consideration the different audiences and community that will engage with each work up-close.
