City Funding Available For Seattle Artists

September 29th, 2011 by master

The Office of Arts & Cultural Affairs is accepting applications for the 2012 CityArtist Projects program that supports Seattle-based individual artists working in the visual, literary and media arts.

CityArtist Projects is an annual funding program that provides support to individual Seattle artists to develop and present new, in-progress or remounted works taken to the next stage. Funding is offered to artists in clusters of disciplines in the visual, media and literary arts and performing arts in alternate years.

Priority will be given to quality art projects that focus on public benefit defined as community impact and access. Projects will be rated on their ability to address at least one of these four elements: engage new audiences, develop partnerships, create access through education and public awareness opportunities and/or present in non-traditional venues.

Artists can apply for set awards of either $2,000 or $4,000. Projects must be presented between May and December 2012 and include a public presentation.

A link to the online application is available at The application deadline is Tuesday, Nov. 1, 2011. For more information, contact Irene Gómez at or (206) 684-7310.

Community Art Project: Dream Banner

May 7th, 2010 by master

Here’s another stop you can make if you’re partaking in tonight’s Fremont First Friday Art Walk: Create a “Dream Banner” under the Lenin statue’s shadow, taking free lessons from an artist.

From Solstice Parade Coordinator Mylinda Sneed:

Join others in creating this community art project; an assemblage of hand painted banners decorating the street for Solstice Parade! Artist Sonia Telesco will be there teaching & creating from 5 p.m. to 7:30 p.m.

There is no charge for this fantastic lesson in celebration arts (but you can always buy the parched artist an adult beverage). All ages welcome to participate (kid friendly with adult assist).

Sneed said Telesco can use a couple of volunteers to help set up at 4 p.m., to help make banners from 5 p.m. to 7:30 p.m. and to help her pack up from 7 p.m. to 8 p.m.
