Plymouth Housing builds and manages permanent supportive housing for individuals who have experienced chronic homelessness. Plymouth is invested in not only serving the individuals who live in our housing, but also being an asset to the communities with whom we share our neighborhoods. In commissioning work for the 12th & Spruce Supportive Housing project, we hope to support emerging artists who are also our neighbors at this building as well as add enrichment to the lives of our residents.

Plymouth Housing and the 12th & Spruce Arts Committee invite artists to submit qualifications to participate in a collaborative artmaking process for art for interior spaces, including hallways and community rooms, at the new Plymouth Housing permanent supportive housing project at 169 12th Avenue, Seattle, WA.

Selected artists will work in groups, in collaboration with the Arts Committee and with potential input from Plymouth staff and residents, to develop and execute designs for artwork.
There are three opportunities available: 1) gallery wall focusing on History of Central District/Squire Park, 2) gallery Wall focusing on Hope and the Future, 3) mural Wall focusing on Sense of Home and Belonging.
