Cross Kirkland Corridor Call for Artists / Calls & Submissions

October 8, 2021

Organization Name: City of Kirkland

Organization Location: Kirkland, WA

Type: Calls & Submissions

Fee: Free


We have an exciting opportunity to share! The Kirkland Cultural Arts Commission is looking for an artist or artist team to beautify the Cross Kirkland Corridor, a ten-foot-wide crushed gravel trail that stretches from Kirkland’s southernmost border all the way up to its northern boundary in Totem Lake. The CKC connects various City parks, neighborhoods, attractions and public spaces, and is highly loved and utilized by residents, guests and commuters. The corridor is an exciting blend of urban and woodsy rural, with deeply forested segments that merge with enhanced sections, spectacular viewpoints, custom bridges, and much more. If you’ve never wandered the CKC we invite you to come and be inspired! We are open to all ideas, including murals, sculptures, wayfinding art… Anything your imagination can come up with!

The total budget for this project is $8,580 and the deadline to apply is Friday, October 8. Please find all the details of the Call on our website.

Note: This project needs to be billed to the City before December 10, 2021 but can be installed in 2022. Please review the Call for more details.

This project is funded by our wonderful partners at 4Culture!

This call is open to both emerging and established practicing artists residing in Washington state. Kirkland-based artists are strongly encouraged to apply. The City of Kirkland and the Kirkland Cultural Arts Commission enthusiastically embrace diversity in all its forms and welcome all artists who want to apply for this call! The City and the KCAC strive to proactively solicit and curate art that reflects the diversity of the Kirkland community, encourages a sense of belonging for all people, and supports the expression of historically marginalized communities. The art created by Black, Indigenous, and People of Color performs a unique role in our community and helps provide inspiration to resolve societal inequity and injustice. This important work of bringing equity to art is pivotal to the KCAC’s efforts to confront injustices of the past and reveal inequities of the present in order to build a more diverse, inclusive collection of public art, now and in the future.
