Call for Art F.A.Q'S
Lusio is exploratory in nature. We have rented the entire park and utilize most it it east of the Amphitheater for art. The amphitheater hosts the music for the event, as well as installations, but installations can be set through out the park.
Applications are open now
This call for art is open to any individual artists and artist groups.
It is FREE to apply - but you can donate if you like. All proceeds go directly into Lusio production costs and help make Lusio possible. Lusio is artist and volunteer run so every little bit helps!
Only one installation per application please.
Art will be curated directly into the nature of the park. Each artist is required to meet with the curator on site to discuss their art, go over logistical of installations and choose an installation site at the Park.
*Out of town artists are except from this requirement.
SOUNDS If your art is sound sensitive we will curate the exhibit to be placed by the amphitheater.
If your art creates sounds; please note we're extra selective about sounds. We want to be respectful of our neighbors living beside the park.
Installation time is limited up to 6 hours day of and must be removed immediately after the event ends.
Each installation, regardless of how large the group is, must designate one person to be the lead and main point of contact for the duration of the event.
Art must be delivered, installed, maintained, and manned at all times by the artist or art group.
Any size of art is an option! We have the whole park to work with!
Finding flat ground can be more of an issue tho.
No staking into the ground (park rules)
No high powered lasers.
No loud sounds, bands, sound camps.
The curator may reach out to you directly if she has any questions.
Lusio is offering a small stipend for selected artists. We can also offer electricity, volunteers, help sourcing the resources needed, marketing to large audience and thousands of people viewing your work.
Want to apply for a grant for your project?
Try Awesome Seattle that funds $1000 in CASH every month, or the SmART Ventures Grant which is another ongoing small grant from the City of Seattle for art projects.
