Snohomish County Arts Commission Seeks Inspiring Art for Edmonds Park
Call-for-artists seeks sculpture that reflects hope for new Esperance Park plaza
EDMONDS, Wash., August 13, 2020 – The Snohomish County Arts Commission is seeking proposals for artwork for a “Hope Symbol” for the plaza in newly renovated Esperance Park in Edmonds. The competition is open to professional artists residing in Snohomish County. Proposals are due by 4:00 p.m. on September 10, 2020.
“Esperance” means “hope” in French. Snohomish County Parks and the Arts Commission propose to commission a site-specific sculptural element for the central area of the park that reflects “hope” in order to inspire park and community users and as a nod to the park’s name. The round public plaza has an 8-pointed star designed into the concrete to symbolize hope. The statue will be incorporated into the plaza.
