Spaceworks Tacoma and Downtown On The Go are seeking applications for a special Artscapes  project at 11th and Market in downtown Tacoma. Deadline to apply is June 25 at 5pm PST

If you have a creative idea of how to transform the side of the building in downtown Tacoma, please send us your ideas! The theme is transportation and the goal is to add to the livability of downtown Tacoma. Click here for guidelines, application checklist and a link to the online application.

We invite artist(s), artist teams and/or community groups to submit proposals to transform the current “Chalk Walls” into temporary 2-dimensional, site-specific installations (Artscapes) . The Artscapes will be up for a period of 6 months and the artist will assume maintenance of the installations.  This project offers a stipend of $2,000 total (for materials, artists’ time and maintenance) for all panels located on 11th and on Market Streets. Applicants can propose to create an Artscape on only one side of the building, i.e. 11th street OR Market Street, for a stipend of $1000 per street side.
