Public Art Installation: Environment + Sustainability / Calls & Submissions

July 27, 2022

Organization Name: Crystal Mountain

Organization Location: Enumclaw, WA

Type: Calls & Submissions

Fee: Free


Crystal Mountain is excited to invite local artists and teams to submit proposals for an outdoor, large-scale, three-dimensional public art installation to be displayed on the summit of Crystal Mountain year-round. The artwork should demonstrate environmental sustainability as one of our core values, showcasing the natural beauty of the mountain and the Pacific Northwest. Crystal Mountain is dedicated to eco-responsibility, as we demonstrate good stewardship of the mountain and preservation of the land that we live and play on.

The art installation should be interactive, made from recycled materials, and/or self-powered– i.e. wind-power, water collection, etc. We are seeking artists who have a passion for the outdoors, the environment, have a connection to the Pacific Northwest, and whose work intersects with social responsibility, sustainability, and caters to a diverse audience. The art will be a permanent, year-round addition to the mountain where guests can interact with the art and reflect on our role in the environment and the mountain community.

The selected artist will receive a prize of $5,000, plus budget for the project including commissioning, installation and infrastructure. All art submissions will be reviewed by the Crystal leadership and marketing team committee. To be considered for this project, please submit the following materials to by July 27:

Subject line: Crystal Mountain Art Submission – [Last Name, First Name]
