call for artists for ARTSPARKS 2010

4Culture Site-Specific, in partnership with Seattle Parks & Recreation and the Seattle Office of Arts & Cultural Affairs, seeks artist proposals for projects in Occidental Park from June through September of 2010

Deadline March 12, 2010

ARTSPARKS seeks to infuse new creative energy in Pioneer Square this summer, creatively engaging the community, “sparking” public interest, and enlivening this historic district. The vision is to bring art in all its forms to Occidental Park (on the corner of 1st and Yesler in downtown Seattle), to create a public space where art and life entwine and art works as a vehicle for positive social change.

Pioneer Square is already a lively arts district, home to a high concentration of galleries and artist studios, including the offices of 4Culture. We’re looking to tap into what is already an abundant resource in the neighborhood. All creative proposals are sought including and not limited to: street theater, dance, temporary sculpture, environmental installations, music, visual art or “happenings.”
