4Culture’s Arts, Heritage, and Preservation programs continue to seek collaborative proposals from King County’s creative community for implementation of innovative projects at historic sites. Historic Site(s) Specific invites King County-based artists, organizations, and creative individuals to consider one or more participating sites included in the Historic Sites roster, and to contact the site stewards to explore ideas for site-specific work that responds to the unique context, history and/or architecture of the sites.
The roster of Historic Sites contains 32 places in King County that have expressed interest in working with creative collaborators to interpret and enliven their sites through innovative performances, installations, etc. The deadline for submission of collaborative proposals is Thursday, October 25, 2012. Guidelines, application information and the roster of Historic Sites are available on the Site-Specific website.
The 4Culture Site-Specific program provides funding and resources for the commissioning and presentation of visual art, installation, and performance in non-traditional places throughout greater King County. The program is supported in part by a portion of King County’s lodging tax, and by generous funding from the National Endowment for the Arts.
