Brief Description

This is an opportunity for an artist/artist team to incorporate one or more unique artworks into the new State Library Archives Building. The Art Committee will select an artist or artist team to create public art for the building or campus with a focus on Washington State – its natural features, 39 counties, diversity, industries, etc. The Art Committee will recommend a variety of sites but prefers that the artist create two artworks, one exterior and one interior, that conceptually and aesthetically relate to each other and the building design. The selected artist will work with the Library Archives design team to discuss opportunities for integration and consider how the artwork might respond to, complement, or enhance the architecture.You must be an established professional artist residing in the US/British Columbia. Washington State artists and those with a deep connection to the state are strongly encouraged to apply.
