OPPORTUNITY
The City of Redmond, Washington, seeks an artist or artist team ("artist") to help the City envision an art installation that integrates into the Redmond Lights Festival. Artists are invited to submit proposals to provide new or existing temporary illuminated artworks. 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.” This can include, but is not limited to: projections, use of LED lights, lanterns, interactive light installations, use of sound and/or sensors.
