Lake Sammamish State Park is asking artists to submit designs for art installation in the park

Artists can request up to $2000 in grant money for their project.

Artists are invited to submit proposals for a temporary sculpture exhibit at Lake Sammamish

State Park in Issaquah.

The exhibit celebrating art in a natural setting, is intended to provide visitors a unique opportunity to engage with art outdoors.

Artist proposals will be chosen through an artist selection panel process. Submissions must be “family-friendly,” artists will be in charge of installation and uninstallation of their piece, it must not be destructive to the park and it must be waterproof and weatherproof, according to the Friends of Lake Sammamish State Park press release.

Applicants can write a budget statement for their project and may ask for up to $2,000 in grant money.

The submission deadline for artists is June 1 by Midnight and selections will be announced by Friday, June 7.
