The AMP: AIDS Memorial Pathway Centerpiece Artwork
- Budget: $300,000
Eligibility: This call is open to professional artists around the world.
This project asks an artist or artist team to create a durable, permanent work of art that creates a physical place for remembrance of the impact of HIV/AIDS on many communities in Seattle and the greater region. The artwork will be sited in a central plaza behind the Sound Transit link light rail station on Capitol Hill at Broadway and John streets. The artwork will be situated near the southern wall of the station’s vent shaft tower. The tower wall rises to approximately 40′ high and 30′ wide, located at the north end of the transit-oriented development (TOD) plaza. The tower serves the very important function of providing ventilation for the light rail station below the plaza. The new plaza will be flanked by the prominent vent tower and several new multi-story residential buildings currently under construction.
