The Seattle Office of Arts & Culture is seeking applications to create artwork that recognizes the tribal peoples of this region, and reflects the Coast Salish tribes that have a historic connection to this territory. This project is part of Waterfront Seattle, a large-scale project to replace the Alaskan Way Viaduct with 20+ acres of new public space, streets, parks, and buildings. There are no preconceptions of what this artwork can be; the artist/artist team will investigate sites and develop a permanent artwork that acknowledges both the history and current presence of local tribes. The artwork could take the form of placemaking, sculptures, carvings, or site enhancements; it can be a singular element, a series of pieces, spaces for gathering and storytelling; and two or three dimensional. The deadline is 11 p.m., Tuesday, January 13, 2015 (Pacific Standard Time).
