Scope of Work
staff, design team, the SPU Artist in Residence, stakeholders, and ARTS to create original artwork within the Ship Canal Water Quality Project Pump Station project site. The selected artist/s will develop outdoor permanent artwork that responds to the Coast Salish history and present condition of the Salmon Bay and Shilshole areas and local estuaries. The artwork could take the form of, but is not limited to, large-scale sculpture, cast metal, glass, light, carvings, murals or site enhancements; it can be a singular element, or a series of pieces, created in either two- or three-dimensional media. Artwork can be created as a free-standing element (or multiple elements) along the perimeter fence or landscaped areas, or can be integrated with the Pump Station building as a two- or three-dimensional artwork. Artist/s are encouraged to explore a diversity of media for this project.

In addition to reflecting Coast Salish historic and cultural connections to Salmon Bay, the artist or artist team may consider incorporating themes that raise awareness to the function of the facility and the health of Seattle’s waterways.
