4Culture, working in partnership with King County's Wastewater Treatment Division, is seeking temporary artworks that will inspire and engage the broader community in a conversation about water quality in our region, environmental stewardship and the extent of the Brightwater system. The commissioned works are not restricted to visual media and can be web-based, film, music, performance, and/or literary.
Selected artists and artist-led teams will be paid to develop conceptual proposals that will be reviewed and approved by 4Culture’s Public Art Advisory Committee. 4Culture expects that the commissioned artwork will be exhibited and experienced in a variety of ways, depending upon medium and context. Implementation for these temporary projects will vary, between September 2012 and October 2013.
There is an overall Conveyance art budget of $60,000. This budget will be divided among the selected artists with individual budgets ranging between $5,000 and $20,000. The artist selection panel will make the decision about how many artists to commission and the individual budget awarded to each selected artist.
Deadline: March 26, 2012 by 5:00 p.m.
Eligibility: Open to professional artists and artist-led teams residing in King and Snohomish Counties.
Budget: varies by project - $60,000 total for all commissioned works
