The city is looking to add a little creativity to the Burke Gilman Trail with the help of Washington artists.
The Seattle Office of Arts & Cultural Affairs and the Seattle Department of Transportation are looking for an artist or a team of artists to create art for the multi-purpose trail. All artists must live in the state of Washington.
The art will be permanent installations on two to five select points along the trail, which have not been selected. “Each part of the installation will enliven its location on the trail and collectively create a larger cohesive artwork,” according to a release by the Seattle Office of Arts & Cultural Affairs. “The artwork will identify the trail as a connector through the city and add an element of discovery to peoples’ experience on the trail.”
The budget for the project is $80,000 which includes all costs to design, fabricate and install artwork. The application deadline is 11 p.m. on Monday, August 1. More information can be found here, or apply here.
