The Office of Arts & Culture (ARTS), in partnership with Seattle Public Utilities (SPU), seeks to commission an artist or artist team to create a site integrated or site specific artwork that is reflective of Coast Salish historic and cultural connections to the Salmon Bay and Shilshole areas for SPU’s Ship Canal Water Quality Project (SCWQP) Pump Station. The new pump station will be located at 24th Ave NW and Shilshole Ave NW in the Ballard neighborhood along the shoreline of Salmon Bay.
This free workshop will provide general information about the Ship Canal Water Quality Project Salmon Bay Pump Station and the CaFE online application system.
We strongly encourage interested artists attend the workshop, especially if you are a first-time applicant. ARTS staff will share more information about the Salmon Bay Public Art Call and review the CaFÉ application process.
Application deadline | 11 p.m., Thursday, January 26, 2017 (Pacific Standard Time).
