City of Maple Valley Public Arts Commission
Maple Valley Iconic Art Project
- Budget: $60,000 - $80,000 (All Inclusive)
Eligibility: Pacific Northwest Artists/Artist Teams
The City of Maple Valley, Washington invites Pacific Northwest professional artists/artist teams to submit their qualifications for consideration to design and create site-specific artwork to enhance a highly visible retaining wall recently constructed along the SR-169 corridor through the city.
The goal of this project is to create artwork that will transform a prominently located retaining wall into an engaging and iconic symbol of the City that generates a sense of welcome and unique community identity. Positioned along a main corridor, the retaining wall is viewed by not only local residents, but by visitors to our community and commuters passing through. Careful consideration will be given to the message of the artwork for the largest “blank canvas” in the city.
All genres of art that are feasible for enhancing the retaining wall will be considered, including mixed media.
