Call for Artists

Updated: Dec 18, 2020

We are so excited to share a call for artists to design and fabricate two entryway features as part of the community-led redesign of the Burke Gilman Playground Park in Northeast Seattle. These site-integrated outdoor artworks/elements/structures will help welcome visitors and set the tone for a more accessible, inclusive and nature-based public space. 3-4 applicants will be chosen to develop proposals (stipend provided).

We welcome all artists and artist teams living in Washington State who feel connected to Seattle and the park location. We highly encourage artists representative of our diverse community including Black, Indigenous, artists of color, LGBTQ+, disabled and emerging artists to apply. We are committed to involving artists who have been historically marginalized and excluded from the public art landscape.


Selected creatives will work with Hannah Viano, lead artist on landscape-architect-led design team, to ensure elements meet project goals and Seattle Parks and Recreation requirements. Please visit the Call for Artist on our website to learn more and access the RFQ. We’d love your help sharing with your creative communities!


If you are interested in being considered for this project, please email qualifications to Hannah Viano along with a letter of interest specific to the scope of work by 5 pm Sunday, January 24th, 2021.
