Redmond, WA
  —The City of Redmond, Washington, seeks an artist or artist team to design integrated art and trailside interpretive features for the Redmond Central Connector Phase II, a regional trail running through the heart of Redmond. The deadline to submit portfolios is Tuesday, March 19, 2013 at 5:00 PM PST.

The selected artist/artist team will join the RCC Phase II design team to develop and design integrated artistic touchstones, either real or virtual, that bridge nature and an evolving urban environment through cutting edge contemporary art and design. The artist budget is up to $25,000.

Building on the successes of the first phase of the Redmond Central Connector which is currently under construction, the goals for this project include making the trail not just a place with art, but a place that is art. The master plan for the RCC is available at www.redmond.gov/rcc.

“Our downtown is becoming more urban and while the Connector will serve as a vital transportation corridor, it will also be a place of contemplation and adventure,” stated Craig Larsen, Parks and Recreation Director.

This call is open to individual artists or artist groups residing in the United States. Eligible artists/artist teams are invited to submit their qualifications and digital application materials for this open call by mail to: Attn: Joshua Heim, City of Redmond, MS: 4NPK, 15670 NE 85th Street, PO box 97010, Redmond, WA 98073-9710.
