Opportunity

The Tacoma Community Redevelopment Authority, in partnership with the City of Tacoma, invites Tacoma artists and/or artist teams to submit qualifications for two opportunities at Valhalla Hall (1216 Martin Luther King Jr. Way):

  • An Exterior Mural – $8,000 Budget, All-Inclusive

This is an opportunity to create a mural on two walls of the exterior covered courtyard, which serves as the entryway into Valhalla Hall. The mural must be painted on an appropriate substrate material off-site for installation on the building walls in coordination with the construction contractor.

  • A Decorative Gate – $12,000 Budget, All-Inclusive

This is an opportunity to design and fabricate artwork to transform a utilitarian entry gate into a beautiful work of art. Artwork must be created from durable materials that can be secured to the existing steel gate. Artwork may be designed and fabricated by the artist or designed by the artist but fabricated by a vendor.

 How to Apply

Visit www.cityoftacoma.org/artsopps for all the details and apply at https://tacomaarts.submittable.com/submit.

Artists can apply for one or both opportunities, and may apply individually or as part of an artist team.

Are you a Pierce County artist with existing portable artworks you’d like to sell? The City of Tacoma is accepting applications now through February 13 for existing portable pieces of artwork to be considered for purchase and installation at People’s Community Center. Artists of color are encouraged to apply. Portable artworks include two-dimensional pieces that fall within certain eligibility guidelines. Media can include, but is not limited to: painting, drawing, works on paper, photography, printmaking, digital, collage, mosaics, fiber, mixed-media, and wall-mountable low-relief sculpture.

“People’s Community Center has become such a focal point for the rapidly evolving, highly diverse Hilltop neighborhood. This is a special opportunity for artists of color from the local area to help build and sustain the already welcoming environment of this facility.” – District 3 Council Member Keith Blocker

Funding for this portable works purchase opportunity comes from Metro Parks Tacoma and the City of Tacoma’s Municipal Art Program which dedicates 1 percent of construction costs from public capital projects to the creation of public art. Artworks purchased through this opportunity will become part of the City of Tacoma’s Municipal Art Collection.
