Call for Artists | RFQ | Maritime 253 Project

📆Deadline to apply: Friday, May 31, 2024 4:00 PM

💵 Budget: $83,000 inclusive of design, fabrication, and installation

Tacoma Public Schools, in partnership with the Port of Tacoma, is building a new skills center for high school students focusing on the maritime trades. Located at the Port of Tacoma and adjacent to a new Port of Tacoma business office (the Port Maritime Center), Maritime253 is located in the heart of the historical puyalupabs village site and continues to be a place of great historic and cultural significance to the Tribe. Through Washington’s 1/2-percent for art program, funding has been set aside for an artist to create a unique artwork on the property. Detailed information is available here.
