Storefronts Seattle is accepting applications for its three program tracks: installations, artist residencies, and creative enterprise.
— Installations offer artists a temporary space to display any two-dimensional, three-dimensional, or new media artwork.
— Artist residencies offer artists of any discipline the space to pursue new projects.
— Creative enterprise offer artists space to experiment and test out new creative business ideas.
Artists will have the opportunity to showcase, create, or sell their work to an audience for a period of three to six months, between March 2011 and January 2012. Artists selected for the installation category will receive $500 per installation. Artist residency and creative enterprise participants will receive the use of prime, street-level retail space at no cost for up to six months.
Storefronts Seattle is a community-driven collaboration between businesses and artists to revitalize Seattle’s historic Pioneer Square and Chinatown-International District neighborhoods by bringing vibrancy, activity, and light to vacant spaces and sparsely populated streetscapes.
Deadline for all applications is Jan. 31. at 11:00 p.m. ♦
