Call for Artists Port Townsend Arts Commission Port Townsend, Washington The City of Port Townsend, Washington, requests applications from artists able to plan and complete an outdoor art installation for its historic Uptown district. The work is to be a focus of interest in a public space that is anchored by a popular farmers’ market and a community center and surrounded by quirky and vibrant businesses and charming Victorian neighborhoods. It should express the spirit of this setting in a way that invites locals and tourists to pause, converse, and enjoy their participation in our community. This embodiment of Uptown Port Townsend is to be a permanent landmark—durable and easily maintained in the wind and rain of a marine climate. It must also be touchable and safe for children. Aside from these caveats, we invite creative interpretations of the project, which might be realized through sculpture, mosaics, painting, lighting, seating, plantings, etc. For requirements see: http://home.olympus.net/~ptarts/ To Apply Send application materials to Scottie Foster, as listed below. Please see information about the application process on the City of Port Townsend website. Please refer questions to: firstname.lastname@example.org Budget $20,000 will be awarded for all costs of the project: design, materials, fabrication, and installation (1% of the eligible capital budget for construction, the amount mandated for public art.) In addition, each finalist will receive $300 for the expense of preparing a detailed proposal. There is no money available for travel.
