PRE-QUALIFIED MURAL ARTIST REGISTRY, ROSWELL, GA

Roswell Arts Fund is creating a Local/Regional Registry of Pre-Qualified Public Art Mural Artists, in an effort to streamline the artist selection process for a range of upcoming mural projects. Artists who are chosen for inclusion in the Registry will be eligible to be considered for future mural projects in Roswell, Georgia in both the public and private sector. Inclusion in the final Registry will be for a period of two years (2018-2020) and artists may update their work samples and related information during that time. Inclusion in the Registry does not guarantee a commission.
Possible outdoor mural project locations may include but are not limited to a range of sites (walls, pavement, signal boxes) as well as painting pianos for outdoor exhibition. Projects may be temporary or permanent. Project budgets will vary.

This call is open only to professional artists or artist teams who reside in Georgia, preferably in the Atlanta region, or who are able to establish temporary residence in the area during the lifespan of any future project. There will be no expenses paid for transportation or housing.

130TH STREETSCAPE PUBLIC ART, BELLEVUE, WA

Budget: $200,000

Deadline: November 6, 2017

The City of Bellevue seeks an artist or artist team to create a series of integrated public artworks that utilize creative placemaking principles as part of the 130th Avenue NE Shopping Street streetscape (currently in design) in the BelRed Arts District.

What makes this opportunity unique: This is a chance to set the tone for a future visible Arts District, with many artists, arts organizations and creative businesses within BelRed tucked away within a few blocks. Sited at the entrance to the Shopping Street will be Sound Transit’s East Link Light Rail line with a station located from 130th to 132nd on Spring Boulevard. With disciplines ranging from dance to music to fabrication, along with an increasing presence of creative technology firms, the artist/artist team is expected to create a series of artworks that are innovative and representative of what this area is planned to be – a vibrant mixed-use district with art in public spaces and art being practiced and created. With 150-foot buildings zoned for the area, this site will look nothing like it does today. This is a great opportunity for something different.

Questions: Scott MacDonald at smacdonald@bellevuewa.gov or 425.452.4852.
