SEATTLE The Seattle Office of Arts & Cultural Affairs is seeking approximately 50 to 75 artists for a juried roster of professional artists eligible for consideration for future public art projects at city utility facilities, parks, in the street right-of-way and at other locations.  The roster will include pre-qualified artists who can create free-standing or integrated, site-specific artwork for locations managed by Seattle City Light, Seattle Public Utilities, Seattle Parks and Recreation and other Seattle city departments.


The call is open to professional artists residing in the United States. In order to be considered for the roster, artists must have successfully completed at least two permanent or temporary, site-specific commissions. The projects will vary in size and complexity, with budgets ranging from $30,000 to $150,000. Application deadline is 11 p.m., Monday, Aug. 29 (Pacific Daylight Time). Go to  for more information and a link to the online application.


The public art project roster will be active from fall 2011 through December 2013. In September, a panel of art and design professionals and city department representatives will review applications and select artists for the roster. When appropriate public art commissions become available, staff will present artists’ qualifications to a selection panel. The panel will choose candidates to interview or to commission for a proposal.
