Sound Transit has issued a call for artists who would like to create "permanent, site-specific artwork" for the East Link light rail extension from Seattle to Redmond.
Artists who qualify for the program will be kept in a national database. Here is some more information from Sound Transit:
The roster will be effective for a period of three years and serve as one of the means of selecting artists to create permanent, site-specific artwork for the agency’s expanding transit system. Art projects will vary in size and complexity, with budgets of approximately $30,000 to $600,000.
Upcoming opportunities will focus on the East Link Extension (ELE) of light rail connecting downtown Seattle with Mercer Island, Bellevue and Redmond. When completed in 2023, the ELE will connect the Eastside’s largest population and employment centers. By 2030, East Link will serve about 50,000 daily riders on one of the regions’ most congested travel corridors.
Those who are interested in applying can do so online at www.4culture.org/apply. All applications must be submitted by 5 p.m. on Monday, April 1.
Sound Transit will hold a series of workshops to offer detailed information about the East Link opportunities and application process. The first meeting takes place from 6:30 to 8:30 p.m. on Tuesday, March 12, at the VALA Art Center at Redmond Town Center, 7303 164th Ave. NE.
