Artists that would like to be included in the Kennewick Arts Commission’s Fast Track Public Art Repository are hereby invited to submit site specific and non-site specific examples of their public art that could be “fast tracked” by the Commission. Artists and artworks included in the roster will be automatically evaluated and may be invited to submit work for future projects.
Proposals will be reviewed on a monthly basis. If accepted, proposals and/or artists will be added to the roster for future consideration.
Work in all media is eligible and encouraged. Please note that the great majority of public artwork commissioned and/or purchased by the KAC is designated for outdoor installation.
Professional artists working in the Pacific Northwest are encouraged to submit proposals. Note that artists do not have to be skilled in working with particular media, but must partner with a professional fabricator that is willing to work with them to realize their idea.
Proposals should include the information requested below. When designing your site specific or non-site specific artwork(s), please pay special attention to our Public Art Master Plan. Artists that relate their proposed artwork to our opportunity zones and community stand a much higher chance of being selected.
Submissions should be made electronically at Go2Kennewick.com/arts.
Questions can be directed to [email protected].
Note that submissions will be included in an online public database. All work whether existing or proposed remains the sole property of the artist until purchased.
