Urban Parks Art Grant
As part of our ongoing efforts to build a richer, more inviting and livable urban core, we’re excited to host the Urban Parks Art Grant. This grant program showcases the work of urban artists in two of Downtown Seattle’s most popular parks – Occidental Square and Westlake Park. We want your ideas for creative, innovative art installations, so we’re holding open requests for proposals twice each year.
The center city is an intersection of neighborhoods, people, ideas and culture. Through the Urban Parks Art Grant, we want to reflect our multifaceted downtown community – both in the projects we select and the artists we partner with.
Our current open call will run from June 1 – July 31, 2019, and selected artists will be notified by Aug. 15. Selections will be made by a panel of art and design professionals, as well as DSA and city staff members. The group will review applicants’ images, qualifications and other materials.
To support our mission of creating a healthy, vibrant downtown, download the application below and submit a proposal.
Working with Artists
Downtown is filled with opportunities for creative enhancement, and we’re always on the lookout for experienced artists who want to help transform public spaces into canvasses of expression. Urban art can help create a sense of place and community. It’s proven to foster innovation and it’s accessible to everyone – workers, residents and visitors. If you love downtown and have a creative vision to bring to life, we want to hear from you. We welcome large-scale installations, small projects and all types in between.Contact Us
Calls for Walls
Calling all building owners! DSA is looking for partners to help bring more art into downtown and create a richer urban experience. And the wall of your building might be the perfect canvas for our next colorful mural. If you are interested in vibrant neighborhood enhancements and know a wall that could use some pizzaz, contact us today.Contact Us
