Rippling Holiday Lights by Suzanne Tidwell, Redmond Lights, 2016

Installations at 2017 REDMOND LIGHTS

Applications due MONDAY, October 2, 2017 at 5:00 PM PST

Artists are invited to submit proposals to provide new or existing temporary illuminated artworks as part of Redmond Lights in Redmond, Washington. The festival is sponsored by the City of Redmond:

Redmond Lights celebrates the City's diverse holiday traditions, cultures and faiths. This three-part event begins with the City Hall Campus Tree Lighting; continues with a stroll down the Redmond Central Connector Luminary Walk; and the evening ends at Redmond Town Center. Along the way, attendees enjoy musical performances and family-friendly activities, in addition to artist-commissioned light installations.


Installations can include illuminated two- or three- dimensional, multi-media works under the theme of “light and peace.”
Project/installation proposals must be original to the artist, although this can include existing work(s) by the artist.
Artwork must be waterproof and weatherproof. Redmond Lights takes place rain or shine.
Artwork should respond to site. Artists are encouraged to visit the event site(s) prior to preparing their proposal.
Artwork must have no lasting physical impact on the site, leaving “no trace.”
Artwork must be family-friendly.
Artist proposals will be chosen through an artist selection panel process.
Artist is responsible for all installation and de-installation needs. Proposal should reflect this.


Awards will be granted up to $3,000.00. There will be an opportunity for the City of Redmond to negotiate ownership of the installation. Please include a budget narrative with your proposal justifying your requested amount. Be sure to include any secured matching funds for this installation.
