Seattle seeks artist for Cheshiahud Lake Union Loop artwork

Since I had a hand in naming it, I take a particular interest in anything related to the Cheshiahud Lake Union Loop. As a fan of art in general, particularly public art, I’m excited about the City of Seattle’s call for art for the Loop. Professional artists in Washington, Oregon, Idaho, Montana, British Columbia and California have two weeks left to submit a proposal to create a new media project that draws on either the history or the context–or both–of the loop site. The city suggests that media could be podcast or cellphone based audio work, some other sort of audio and/or video installation (maybe guided tours?) or Web interactive events. The whole point is to create work that engages the visitor to the trail in connecting with the trail in a more than physical way.

The sky’s hardly the limit with a mere $18K budget, but that’s still enough to create something memorable and meaningful. (And, hey, artists: make it cool enough and I’ll take you out to dinner or something, okay?) Submission guidelines are available online and if you need more information on the trail itself, check out its Seattle Parks page.
