Tukwila Parks and Recreation is working with Urban Artworks to create Arts in the Parks, a public mural program. The program will improve the visual vibrancy, connection, and interest to Tukwila’s beautiful parks system.
Arts in the Parks offers 20 opportunities with stipends ranging from $100 to $1250 with additional materials and process support from Urban ArtWorks. The art call includes seven wall-mounted murals, two large murals, one ground mural, and ten art mesh banners. Art will be installed in five Tukwila parks, and a “pop-up” art banner gallery will rotate from site to site. All art will be produced and installed over the summer of 2021. Artists that work or live in Tukwila and South King County will be prioritized.
