Henry Art Gallery

Set in Motion—Public Art Exhibition (Seattle Bus Billboards)

  • Deadline:
  • Budget: $500 honorarium
  • Eligibility: This call is open to professional artists at all stages of their careers in the Pacific Northwest.

The Henry Art Gallery invites all artists living and working in the Pacific Northwest to propose inspiring images to be installed as public art on bus boards through the exhibition, Set in Motion. Selected artworks will be exhibited throughout the Seattle area from December 2020 through February 2021.

The title, Set in Motion, while in part referring literally to the mobile and transitory aspect of the exhibition format, also provides a loose thematic framework for artists to consider. To set in motion, by synonym: to activate, to initiate, to get under way, to instate, to usher in, to open—there are myriad ways to interpret the phrase, and how movement might be considered in this moment. We look forward to seeing yours.

We invite all artists in the Pacific Northwest community to consider this invitation. We particularly encourage BIPOC artists and those belonging to underrepresented groups to apply. 10 artists’ work will be presented as part of Set in Motion; they will be selected both through this open call and by curatorial invitation.
