Snohomish County Arts Commission Now Accepting Submissions to Exhibit Sculptures on County Campus

EVERETT, Wash., January 27, 2016 –Today, the Snohomish County Arts Commission announced an invitation for artists to submit images of existing free-standing sculptural works to be considered for temporary installation and exhibition in an open air setting on the Snohomish County Plaza in Everett, WA.

“The opportunity for the public to have access to public art is a continued goal of the Snohomish County Arts Commission,” said Robert Fairfax, Commission Chair representing District 5. “By offering this annual sculpture exhibit, we activate dialog and conversations around cultural expression, artistic style, and the creative process”.

Freestanding sculpture that is suitable for an outdoor setting is a requirement for submissions. The artwork must be durable, vandal resistant, and pose no safety threats. Sculptures must be ready to install in May and available to the County until the end of 2016. A fee of $1,000 will be paid to each artist that is selected to exhibit work.

Details of eligibility and other program requirements are included in the application package, which must be filled out and returned to the Snohomish County’s Office of Economic Development by 5 p.m. Monday, April 4, 2016. Applications received after that time and date will not be considered.
