Deadline: 06/26/2018, 3:00 PM Central Time

In 1974, the state Legislature formed the Art in Public Places program. Washington is home to one of the nation’s largest and most diverse state-owned art collections, containing over 4,600 artworks in a wide range of materials. The collection is sited primarily at colleges, universities, state agencies, and K-12 public schools, and includes two- and three-dimensional artworks by contemporary artists of local and national renown.
The goal of the Roster is to provide local Art Selection Committees with the best range of artists to choose from for their projects. A successful Roster will include a variety of artistic disciplines, subject matter, and cultural viewpoints. Artworks created through the program become part of the State Art Collection, managed by ArtsWA.

Inclusion on the Roster does not guarantee a project.
ArtsWA’s Art in Public Places Project Managers work with local Art Selection Committees to develop a list of artwork criteria and goals for each individual project. Works are sited in both interior and exterior locations at state-owned facilities (mostly state university buildings and state agencies). Art Selection Committees review the portfolios of artists available within the budget range of their projects. Program staff determines suitable budget ranges for artists on the Roster based on each artist’s demonstrated experience and their selected choices from the application. If selected for the Roster, portfolios submitted for the Call for Applications are the same ones viewed by local Art Selection Committees. Accepted artists may update their portfolio materials once per year during their term.
Program staff will pre-screen applications to confirm each meets the eligibility requirements. This includes the receipt of completed, on-time materials and residency. To ensure that the Roster includes a range of artists working within budgets that are proportional to projected project opportunities, staff will divide applications into two categories for the panel review:
