Budget: $55,000 all-inclusive for each opportunity (4 total opportunities)
Eligibility: Artists living in Washington, Oregon, Idaho, or British Columbia, Canada

The City of Tacoma is seeking four (4) artists or artist teams to each create an artwork along the City’s segments of the Prairie Line Trail (PLT), a former rail line being converted to a linear public park, running through the heart of downtown Tacoma. Each artwork should draw from extensive historic research gathered by the existing project team, and provide historic interpretation for an important location or theme in an artful way. Artworks should include interpretive text related to the narrative of the PLT, either integrated into the artwork, or as associated signage. Selected artists will be encouraged to represent less told stories along the trail, and artists with diverse cultural perspectives are encouraged to apply.
