International Call for Temporary Outdoor Artworks, Flourish: Heaven & Earth X at Carkeek Park (WA), with honorarium
Deadline: July 11th, 2018
Introduction: The Carkeek Park Advisory Council (CPAC) and Seattle Parks and Recreation invite proposals for placement of up to eight temporary outdoor artworks in Carkeek Park, an approximately 190-acre urban forest located in NW Seattle, from August 20th – October 21st, 2018. There is no fee to apply.
Artists and artist teams will be offered an honorarium of $1,000 ($500 upon successful installation of accepted projects, and another $500 upon successful de-installation of projects). For the ninth season of the ongoing series, the organizers have selected ArtSiteLtd, a professional sculpture installation team, as curator. The theme for the 2018 Heaven & Earth installation is FLOURISH.
The call is open to artists of all mediums, established or emerging. All work should have a minimal impact on the park and eventually leave “no trace” following removal. Up to eight artists and/or artist teams will be selected from the pool of applicants and offered an honorarium of $1000 ($500 upon install, $500 upon de-install by the selected deadline). The submissions will be juried by a committee working closely with Seattle Parks and Recreation, CPAC, and the curator. The Heaven and Earth archive and website, featuring artist statements, biographies, and images will be updated for the project by CPAC. Artists may also be eligible for a Seattle Arts & Culture smART ventures grant (no deadline; ongoing).
An estimated 50,000 people will visit Carkeek Park during the display period. The exhibition is made possible by the Carkeek Park Advisory Council, Seattle Parks and Recreation, and the Associated Recreation Council.
