RFQ for Uptown Mural Designs / Calls & Submissions

June 15, 2022

Organization Name: Vivo Mercer & Vivo Roy

Organization Location: Seattle, WA

Type: Calls & Submissions

Fee: Free


Two new developments in Uptown – “Vivo Mercer” at 118 W Mercer and “Vivo Roy” at 101 W Roy Street are inviting artists to submit qualifications & interest for mural designs. There are three total murals: two large-scale murals which will be seen in relation to one another, and one smaller scale mural at the pedestrian level. The two large murals will be highly visible from Mercer and other sightlines in the neighborhood, and the smaller mural will face the sidewalk on Roy, adjacent to a metro bus stop.

Artists are welcome to apply for one, two, or all three murals. Selected artists will be given a stipend to propose a specific art concept for these murals, and depending on final submissions received, an artist may be selected for either one, two, or all three of the murals. The final mural designs will be produced in collaboration with Urban Artworks, who will lead production and installation of the artist’s designs.

We are looking for work that relates to the rich Uptown Arts District neighborhood and can create a point of curiosity for pedestrians passing by. We are seeking this artwork to foster the Uptown district’s unique expressive character and sense of authenticity.
