Art+Flight RFP: Installation & Artist in Residence / Residencies

March 10, 2023

Organization Name: The Museum of Flight

Organization Location: Tukwila, WA

Type: Calls & Submissions | Residencies

Fee: Free


The Museum of Flight is seeking proposals for an installation and artist in residence.

On June 10, 2023 The Museum of Flight will boldly depart from its traditional flightpath to host a museum-wide, community-focused celebration connecting the region’s vibrant art scene with its rich aerospace history. Art+Flight will exhibit artwork in all mediums, plus offer interactive mural painting, music, dance and plenty of family activities. Guest speakers and engaging community events will regularly enhance the celebration through January 7, 2024.

The installation and artist-in-residence component will be located within the Northwest Aeroclub Room inside the William E. Boeing Red Barn, the birthplace of the Boeing Airplane Company, which is part of The Museum of Flight’s Collection and seamlessly integrated into the footprint of the Museum. The location offers a warm, rustic appeal with its historic wooden architecture.

This room also serves as a popular space for private events, so the installation must be made with durable material to withstand high-volume use of the space by all ages.

Only a single artist or artist team will be selected for this opportunity.

Artist Stipend: $10,000
