The City of Tacoma is looking for an artist or team to create an Art Plan for the Tacoma Mall Area. This area is slated for tremendous growth and has been designated a Regional Growth Center (one of two in Tacoma). It is also located on top of the South Tacoma Aquifer, which provides supplemental drinking water for the City. With a subarea plan adopted in 2018 and several public investments underway, the neighborhood is well-positioned for much needed improvements to support a healthy, thriving population center within Tacoma. An Art Plan will help create a vision and roadmap for art and culture interventions to support the growth of the neighborhood over the next 10-15 years, starting with the currently-underway Madison District Green Infrastructure Projecthttps://www.cityoftacoma.org/government/city_departments/environmentalservices/surface_water/green_stormwater_infrastructure__gsi_/gsi_projects/madison_district_green_infrastructure_project. The Art Plan and resulting artworks should support a healthy and connected community, be informed by robust community engagement, and be in alignment with existing plans.
