Opportunity for Washington young graphic or visual artists in eligible counties to have their artwork featured on a newly released series of transit cards. The winning artists will receive funding of $2,000, technical assistance, and the chance to create artwork that will be highlighted on a new series of ORCA cards. Eligible artists must be between the ages of 16 and 25 and residing in King, Kitsap, Mason, Pierce, Skagit, Snohomish, Thurston and Whatcom Counties. Funding may be used for the artist's design, use fee including rights-of-reproduction, and applicable taxes.
4Culture seeks three emerging artists to create original artwork to be featured on limited-edition ORCA cards that will celebrate and inaugurate each new line in the RapidRide Expansion program. For each of the three new lines, one young artist will be selected to create 2D artwork unique to the identity of that corridor. The selected artists will become part of a cohort advised by a Mentor Artist who will assist the cohort in thinking about how their artwork responds to place, advise on technical requirements for artwork reproduction, and provide support for artwork review with the 4Culture Public Art Advisory Committee (PAAC) and County partners.
Artwork created by the cohort artists will be translated onto the front side of a limited-edition series of ORCA cards that will take the place of any standard ORCA card. The printing, production, and distribution of these ORCA cards will be managed by Metro and 4Culture and is not part of the artists’ scope.
Artists will retain copyright but permit 4Culture to reproduce the artworks on the cards and as a suite of archival prints to be installed within Metro facilities. At the conclusion of the project, 4Culture may elect to negotiate an additional fee for the purchase of the original, unframed artworks to become part of the King County Public Art Collection.
