4Culture seeks historic sites

4Culture is accepting applications through September 12, 2014 for historic sites and designated landmarks in King County to be included in the Historic Site(s) Specific roster. Sites on the roster invite inquiries and ideas from King County artists interested in developing a collaborative project proposal for 4Culture’s 2015 Historic Site(s) Specific Program. Once funding is awarded, sites collaborate further with the artist through the execution of their project anytime during 2015.

Deadline for collaborative project proposals is October 8, 2014.

The Historic Site(s) Specific Program initiative seeks to increase the role of art in strengthening our county residents’ sense of history and place, and inspire our creative community to engage with the stories that define local history. Artists, working with Historic Sites, develop works that enliven and interpret historically significant spaces.

Eligible Historic Sites are:

Designated King County or Interlocal City Landmarks, or

Designated City of Seattle Landmarks, or

Included in 4Culture’s Destination Heritage Guide series, or

Included in 4Culture’s Inventory of Historic Halls, or

Managed by heritage museums or historical organizations, or

Pre-determined by 4Culture to qualify as historically significant for the purposes of this program.

Sites are encouraged to contact 4Culture program staff to discuss the potential site if unknown.

Sites on the Historic Sites Roster are determined to be as historically

significant by 4Culture for the purposes of this program.
