Bridge Artist in Residence: Digital Data Visualization Art
- Budget: Each artist selected (2) will receive $10,000 USD inclusive of all residency time, costs, project, presentation, documentation of the work, and applicable taxes

The Seattle Office of Arts & Culture (ARTS), in partnership with the Seattle Department of Transportation (SDOT), is seeking two digital artists/creators working in digital data visualization art for a unique, project-based residency within two of Seattle’s iconic bridges. The northwest tower of the Fremont Bridge and the southeast tower of the University Bridge will be used by the artists as working studio/office space and as inspiration for their work. For the purposes of this application, Digital Data Visualization Art refers to graphical representation of information and data, as an integral component of the aesthetic intention of the artwork.
Two artists will be selected for two separate residencies that will be scheduled with each artist from June – December 2023 (assumed 2-3 month residency). Each artist will determine a schedule of when they are “in-residence” and the project will include public sharing of artwork created as part of the residency. New work created as part of this residency shall represent or illuminate some aspect of the bridge or bridge’s history, real or metaphorical, but it is assumed that artists will use data from or relating to the bridge their residency is based in.
