The City of Tacoma’s Office of Arts and Cultural Vitality is seeking an artist or artist team to participate in the streetscape improvements along Tacoma’s East 64th Street – between Pacific Avenue and McKinley Avenue – by creating permanent public artwork(s) along the streetscape to enliven this multi-modal transportation corridor running through the residential neighborhood. In addition, the artist will work with the design team to affect the aesthetic design of the streetscape and identify opportunities for discrete or integrated artworks to be incorporated into the streetscape design in future phases. The project should be informed by a meaningful community engagement process in order to reflect the needs of the community, create identity, and communicate an authentic sense of place. The selected artist will have experience working with diverse cultural communities and demonstrated success creating aesthetically strong artwork that results from community engagement.
Eligibility: Applicant(s) must live in Washington State; applicant(s) can apply as a single artist or as an artist team; applicant(s) must be 18 years or older and not a full-time student; applicant(s) must be a professional artist; applicant(s) cannot be a member of the Tacoma Arts Commission or an employee of the City of Tacoma.
People who are members of historically disenfranchised racial, ethnic, cultural, and other identity groups are encouraged to apply.
Application deadline is Oct.10, 11:59 p.m.
