The Olympia Arts Walk selects one artist for each Arts Walk event (two artists per year) whose artwork is featured on the cover of the event map and in event related publications. A jury panel will recommend two artists – one for spring and one for fall – to be commissioned by the City of Olympia to each create a new, original work of art for the cover of the Arts Walk 2018 maps.
Artists 18 and older who have officially participated in Olympia’s Arts Walk within the last two years are invited to submit images of current work. Official participants are ones that have been listed in an Olympia Arts Walk map individually or in group show. The selected artists will each be awarded $600 to create a new work. Selected artists agree to sign a contract with the City regarding purchase and provide a business license to receive payment.
