This is a unique opportunity for artists who wants to gain experience in the public art field. Applicants do not have to show previous public art project experience. The 4Culture Project Manager will be able to help artists new to public art practice to understand the design review process and how to present ideas effectively, how to work with our county partners and how to transition studio-based artwork and concepts into design for public space. The selected artist will be responsible for creating digital files that meet the technical requirements described by the architectural resin panel vendor. Digital files include creating a vector or raster file, saved in CMYK with image output as close to 150 dpi as possible.

4Culture will hire the architectural resin panel vendor and supervise the production and installation of the panels. The panels will be installed on the Harborview Medical Center (HMC) campus on floors 9 and 10 of the Ninth and Jefferson building. These floors are being built out to provide new specialty clinics. The services that will be offered here include: Cardiology, Vascular Surgery Clinic, Diabetes Clinic, Kidney Clinic, Neurology, Urology, Hematology, GI, Podiatry and Rehab PT.

The artist fees will cover research and outreach, design ideation and creation, and production of digital materials that can be used by the fabricator. 4Culture will ensure that the fabricator is available to answer technical questions and help guide the artist’s design submittals.

Eligibility: open to artists who reside in King County, WA. Artists and graphic designers who are able to translate their two-dimensional work such as photography, prints, illustration, and graphic design to a digital file are strongly encouraged to apply. One artist will be selected for the project.
