A Statement of Solidarity and Commitment to Equity from the Redmond Arts and Culture Commission:

The Redmond Arts & Culture Commission mourns the murders of George Floyd, Breonna Taylor, Ahmaud Arbery, and many more unnamed Black men and women at the hands of police, and at the hands of our institutions, directly and indirectly.  We acknowledge that systemic racism unjustly targets our Black communities and we stand in solidarity with our Black and Brown siblings...

We partner with the Arts and Culture Commission to promote public participation in the arts and to build community.  Our art programs provide educational opportunities and support local artists and cultural arts organizations to continue their work in Redmond.

Public Art Intensive Eastside Call 

The Public Art Intensive Eastside is a free, three-day basic training overview to visual artists who wish to learn how to develop their work for the public realm but may or may not have previous public art experience. Topics covered in the workshops include, contracting, fabrication, maintenance, design concepts, and social practice. Participants will have an opportunity to apply for up to four temporary public art projects for the City of Redmond ranging from $1,250 - $2,500. 

We recently had our Q&A Webinar led by Elisheba Johnson and Marcia Iwasaki where they went over the application process and answered questions from interested artists. The video can be viewed here. QA
