Opportunity for Artists in Pioneer Square

The Seattle Office of Arts & Cultural Affairs, in partnership with Shunpike, seeks up to 12 artists to develop temporary installations for 12 vacant storefronts in Seattle’s Pioneer Square and Chinatown/International District neighborhoods. The installation project, titled Storefronts Seattle, will be on display from September to November 2010. Artwork may be in any two-dimensional, three-dimensional or new media. Artists may be selected for more than one installation.

Storefronts Seattle is a pilot program to make vacant storefront space available for creative uses with the possibility of future expansion to other Seattle neighborhoods. The installation project is part of a series of opportunities that include artist residencies using storefronts, where visual and performing artist can create work, rehearse and/or perform.

Apply via CaFE at the website below.
Open to artists living within 100 miles of Seattle.
Deadline: July 26, 2010
Budget: $500 per installation
