Sammamish needs artists
July 12, 2014
New: July 12, 1:16 p.m.
The city of Sammamish is looking for help in dressing up what is often a dry sort of document.
Sammamish is in the midst of a once-a-decade rewrite of its comprehensive plan, and city leaders want an artist to help illustrate the plan.
The Comprehensive Plan is a guide which underlies land use, transportation, housing, economic development, parks and other long-term programs.
The artwork would find ways to symbolize creativity and energy. It could include work such as photos, poems and abstract designs.
While open to anyone, the city will give preference to Sammamish residents. More than one artist may be selected, and the artist selected is expected to coordinate with the city’s consultant in developing the work. A stipend of $800 will be divided among those chosen.
The deadline to apply is July 18, and the artist or artists will be notified by Aug. 22. For details and to apply, visit http://www.sammamish.us/events/Default.aspx?ID=3246.
