April 2, 2024

Organization Name: 21B

Organization Location: Seattle, WA

Type: Calls & Submissions

Fee: Free


We will be seeking artist designs for the entrance to the Safeway parking garage. We will be interested in one of two approaches. Either:

A) “Post Card” mural as seen in several cities. A Queen Anne themed mural where the text is infilled with area relevant content and the surrounding space may be adorned with fruit, veggies, floral, fish and bakery items. Included examples of this as well.
B) Produce-based art – not only fruit and veggies, but floral, fish and bakery should be included as well. A fun, less refined style would be welcome. See examples attached.

Selected artist finalists will be given a stipend to propose/sketch a specific concept or design for this mural. The final selected artist will be paid an additional stipend to refine their design for hi-resolution printing. The mural will be printed and installed in collaboration with the selected artist.

This request for qualifications is open to all artists working in or connected to Seattle and the northwest. The final deliverable by the artist(s) will be a full design that is approved by the project stakeholders and executable for large scale printing. Any form of 2D visual art is welcome to apply – Digital design, images of work on paper, painting, photography, etc.

Applicable renderings illustrating the mural location are included below. Further details for design & coordination such as exact sizes will be provided to the artist finalists.

Artist finalists will be selected with a stipend of $500 to develop a preliminary concept proposal. The proposals will be discussed by a committee of stakeholders, and the mural design to be developed fully will be selected through this process.

The Artists with the selected designs will receive $2000 to finalize the design, and work with the committee on bringing the mural to installation.
