Call for Artists | RFQ | Washington School for the Deaf

The Washington Center for Deaf and Hard of Hearing Youth (CDHY) and the Washington State Arts Commission (ArtsWA) are pleased to share an exciting opportunity. We seek an artist or artist team to design and create a unique artwork for the new Academic and Physical Education Building. The building sits on the Washington School for the Deaf (WSD) campus.

The facility is currently in design and scheduled to open in the 2024-2025 school year. There are opportunities for:

  • either interior or exterior artwork
  • integrating the artwork into the building architecture
  • creative reuse of historic architectural elements and materials

We strongly encourage deaf and hard of hearing artists as well as artists with a strong connection to the deaf community to apply.

The artwork budget is $156,000. This budget includes design, fabrication, installation, and tax. Submissions are due Tuesday, January 3, 2023, at 5:00 p.m. PT through ArtsWA’s Submittable site.

Please read the complete guidelines to learn more and apply .
