Plymouth Housing Call for Artists: Mural at 2nd and Mercer Housing

Plymouth Housing is searching for an artist to design a mural for their upcoming building. The project at 2nd and Mercer is across the street from Seattle Center and will provide a new space for Path with Art. The mural will serve to tie their building to the larger community and the local arts context. They’re working with a committee of stakeholders on the selection process, which will also include community voting.

At this stage, they are looking for artists to submit statements of interest and a selected portfolio; no design proposals will be accepted at this time. Three artists will be selected to develop a design proposal for a stipend of $1,000. The artist with the selected design will receive a $2,500 stipend to finalize the design, which will be converted into a paint by numbers system with Urban ArtWorks and painted by members of the community.

Budget: $1,000 for artists selected to propose design


They’re seeking a person or team who meet the following qualifications:
• Demonstrated experience with public art
• Aesthetic excellence in the design of completed projects
• Ability to respond to the particular geographic and programmatic context of this site
and the new building
• Consider the physical constraints of the site
• Interest in working with the community during community painting sessions
• Ability to work with an existing steering committee comprised of community
• The selection committee will also consider diversity and connection with the
context of the site as discussed above


Applications must include all of the following for consideration:
• Artist’s statement of interest, considering the context of the site and project to
state artist’s background, their interest in this project, and preliminary design ideas
