City of Kenmore
Public Art at City of Kenmore Waterfront Parks
- Budget: $143,473
Eligibility: Artist or artist team
The City of Kenmore is seeking an artist or artist team to develop artworks for three Kenmore waterfront parks:
• Log Boom Park: 17415 61st Avenue NE
• Squire’s Landing Park: 7515 NE 175th Street
• Rhododendron Park: 6910 NE 170th Street
Waterfront access improvements are planned at all three parks as part of the Walkways and Waterways bond levy that passed in 2016. Construction is expected between 2020-2023.
The three Kenmore parks, bordering on the intertwined natural waterways ecosystem of river, stream and lake that define the City, will be grouped together for this public art opportunity. This approach gives an artist the prospect of creating stimulating, responsive artworks that showcase the interconnected waterway systems at work in Kenmore’s natural environment. This enhances the community’s understanding and appreciation of a wonderful part of their City’s environment. It is important to take full advantage of the uniqueness of Kenmore’s water tied to open spaces to give the community places of respite that contrast with the surrounding built and infrastructure environment.
