The Washington State Convention Center and Pine Street Group seek an artist or artist-led team to create a site-specific artwork for a dramatic and highly visible site. Within Seattle’s newly expanding Convention Center, The Party Room is a cantilevered space extending event activities at the Ballroom (6th floor) level. Below this event space is an impressive site for artwork—visible within the Convention Center Addition from the escalators and dramatic stair climb landings, and also from outside the building on Pine Street, a main east/west connector from Capitol Hill to the waterfront.
Project Budget:$800,000 [Artist’s project budget is inclusive of artist fees, materials, fabrication, on-site installation, travel and transportation, and Washington State Sales/Use Tax. In addition to the artist’s project budget, the Addition has set-aside $200,000 for lighting and electrical service, engineering support.]
Eligibility: Open to professional artists and artist-led teams residing in the United States or British Columbia.
