Call for Artists – Meydenbauer Center Storefront Windows

Meydenbauer Center is looking for an artist to develop a piece of digital art to fill the windows along our storefront that celebrates the beauty and amenities in our community and enhances the appearance of our storefront in anticipation of the Sound Transit Bellevue Downtown Station opening. This piece will have broad community visibility on our storefront across from the Downtown Station and Bellevue City Hall.

Project Details

• Venue: The work would be displayed along the Meydenbauer Center streetscape on NE 6th Street directly opposite the Bellevue Downtown Station for the East Link Light Rail. We are looking for work that would be able to be appreciated from a distance as guests are walking along the light rail station.

• Project Specification: We are looking for a digital piece that will be commercially printed to fill a total of 13 exterior windows across 1,573 linear feet. Our goal is to highlight Bellevue’s amenities and natural beauty in an illustrative format. We would like Meydenbauer Center’s role in the community as a gathering place and community performing arts center to be featured within the content of the piece in some way. Some additional areas of inspiration include Meydenbauer Bay, Bellevue Botanical Gardens, Bellevue’s many parks, Lake Washington and Bellevue Art Museum.

• Budget: We have a $7,500 budget for the artwork and will handle the printing expenses separately.
