Grant to a Washington, Oregon, or British Columbia artist or team of artists to create and install artwork in the lobby of a new building. Funding is intended for travel, local sales tax, installation, artist fees, and all fees involved in the actual creation of the artwork.
Skanska seeks an artist or artist-led team to create artwork for a dramatic, highly visible new Class A office, retail and cultural space development in downtown Seattle. At 2+U, commerce and culture blend seamlessly, steps from businesses, arts, and entertainment that make Seattle unique.
The lobby artwork is envisioned as a major piece within a collection of artwork, art experiences and events at 2+U that engage artists with international reputations, emerging local talent, and 2+U’s creative tech tenants. The art collection is intended to reflect a sensibility grounded in the Pacific Northwest, celebrate the creative process that is at the heart of Seattle’s past and its future, and underscore the unique nature of the 2+U development.
Due to the compressed timeline, Skanska is open to commissioning site-specific artwork or purchasing existing artwork.
Finalists will be selected on the basis of the following criteria:
