Cheney Stadium will undergo major renovations this fall. As part of the renovation, the Tacoma Arts Commission has two opportunities available for artists or artist teams to create site-responsive artwork that will complement the northwest feel of the stadium.
The two available opportunities are:
— Artists or artist teams from Pierce County, Kitsap County, or Thurston County in Washington State are encouraged to submit qualifications for a $50,000 commission for Cheney Stadium. The application deadline is Aug. 16, 2010.
— Artists or artist teams from Arizona, California, Colorado, Idaho, Montana, Nevada, New Mexico, Oregon, Utah, Washington, Wyoming and British Columbia are encouraged to submit qualifications for a $160,000 commission for Cheney Stadium. The application deadline is August 16, 2010.
The artist selection process will be facilitated by the City of Tacomas Municipal Art Program. For a complete prospectus, go to http://www.tacomaculture.org/arts/opportunities.asp .
