Sammamish Outdoor Art Piece “Celebrating Diversity, Equity, & Inclusion”

The Sammamish Arts Commission in cooperation with the Sammamish City Council is seeking artists, who will design and create an art piece for one of Sammamish Community Parks. The Commission is approaching the theme “Celebrating Diversity, Equity and Inclusion” where Diversity means a mix of different identities and cultures, Equity to acknowledge that we do not always start on a level playing field, and Inclusion to acknowledge individual voices and power. Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion is a priority to the city.

City of Sammamish’s Proclamation Reaffirming Principles and Values of Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion

As your city government, our role is to bring people together and not divide them. Our job is to be welcoming of all people and all ideas in recognition that we truly are stronger and smarter together. We need to recognize certain essential principles and conduct our government and hopefully our lives consistent with those principles.

From the City’s DEI page:

Commission hopes the artwork feels welcoming and inclusive for different identities and cultures to enjoy and experience the artwork in their own way. The goal is to offer a vision of how DEI can evolve and provide a better, more equitable, and inclusive future.

  • Deadline: June 28, 2022 5:00 pm
  • Budget: $50,000
  • Eligibility: This call is open to established practicing artists residing in Washington State and have experience in medium scale public art installation. Local Washington State artists with sculpture abilities, but without medium scale public art installation experience, are still encouraged to apply. Black, indigenous, and people of color (BIPOC) artists are strongly encouraged to apply.

Regional Parks & Trails Public Art Plan

4Culture An artist, curator or artist team will work with 4Culture and King County Parks to develop an art plan for King County Parks’ extensive network of parks, regional and backcountry trails, and open spaces in collaboration with the unique communities they connect to throughout King County, WA.

As the Puget Sound region in Washington continues to develop, public lands, including the network of parks, trails, and open spaces stewarded by King County Parks (KC Parks), become an even more important asset to the public. The impacts of Covid-19 on society have highlighted the outdoors as a safe place to interact with people, as well as create positive impacts on mental health and wellbeing. During the pandemic we have looked to these spaces to gather, work, play, exercise, and explore. KC Parks continues to expand its network of recreational spaces into denser urban areas, rural land, and the backcountry to provide ample opportunities for outdoor access.

4Culture and KC Parks seek a planning artist, curator, or artist team to develop a dynamic arts plan which holistically considers the future development of KC Parks network of parks, trails and open spaces, and authentically engage with the unique communities that these valuable public spaces reach.

  • Budget: $75,000 [inclusive of artist fee and applicable taxes].
    The artist, curator, or artist team will receive $32,000 for the initial phase of the project which includes research and immersion in the parks and trails systems. An additional $21,500 will be allocated for programming and community engagement. The artist/curator/team will receive $21,500 for art plan development, design, and completion of the plan.Funds of up to $5,300 are available for travel based on selected artist or curator’s location.*amount to be based on current GSA Per Diem rates
  • Project timeline: July/August 2022—August 2023
  • Eligibilityopen to artists and curators, working independently or as a team, who reside in the United States or British Columbia and have preliminary planning experience in arts-related work with a focus on equity and social justice. Candidates with preliminary planning experience are strongly encouraged to apply as a team as we support the growth and development of emerging artists and curators. Artist teams of no more than two people are eligible if the team is able to show evidence of past collaborative work. Mentorship is available for individuals and teams who feel they would benefit from guidance, dialogue, and support from a seasoned planning artist. There is an expectation that an agreed percentage of residency time will be in King County, WA with the remaining residency work to be conducted remotely.
  • Application: submission of an online application is required for this opportunity.
  • Deadline: Tuesday, May 31, 2022 by 4:00 pm PDT.
    Please allow ample time to complete and upload your application; applications will not be accepted after the 4:00 pm deadline.

Price Sculpture Forest Call For Art

There are many opportunities to show your art at Price Sculpture Forest. We encourage your participation. The park will provide you with excellent public exposure in a beautiful setting. We offer early phase participants 100% of your sales proceeds with no commission, to encourage inclusion of your best work and to support you as an artist. Check out the opportunities and submission guidelines below.

Click Here for full prospectus

The Sculpture Forest initially has two specific themes and some other guidelines which perform best in our jurying process. Future rotating shows will be more open ended. Each of the two overarching sculptural themes has its own devoted walking trail loop.

Representation of beauty in forms of natural elements, animals, plants, ecosystems, and human interaction with the non‐civilized world. Preference is for uplifting, positive messages and experiences (or neutral ones), though we will occasionally consider works that poetically evoke the dangers and implications of environmental degradation. Sculptures should be at home in a native forest setting.

Bring on the fun! This section of the park is devoted to releasing a sense of discovery. What will appear around the next turn of the trail? Will it make the grandparents laugh? Will it make the kids say “that’s really cool”? Is it unusual or beguiling in a relatable way? Is it fantastical or well outside the norm? These are all worthy ideas for Whimsy Way.

There is a general preference for stone, some natural looking metals, and bio‐natural materials (wood, shells, antlers, etc.) in Nature Nurtured. In Whimsy Way, all materials, colors, and approaches are open ended. Sculptures should be sturdy to handle potentially appreciative hands and to hold up well in an outdoor year-round environment.

Groundswell: City of Shoreline Public Art Program

Call for Temporary Environmental Artwork

As a means of fostering new interpretations of art and nature in urban spaces, the City of Shoreline Public Art Program seeks temporary artworks for display in parks (along trails, glades, meadows, and reclaimed gravel pits), especially Brugger’s Bog and Southwoods,to encourage audiences to visit these resources as well as to exercise and spend time in comparative silence. Walking, way-finding, and searching for the “hidden” artwork is a primary component of the project. Proposals will be juried by a selection panel consisting of an artist, art professional and/or collector, professional handler / engineer, additional community resident(s) and City staff. The City will promote the artwork on its website and newsletters, producing a map to encourage exploration of the area. For time and materials, selected artists are offered honoraria of $500 - $1,500 (depending on scope of project) following installation.

Although there is no deadline, the submission pool is reviewed quarterly (approximate dates: March 24, June 23, Sept. 22, Dec. 1). Artists should submit materials 2 weeks before these dates for full consideration.
