The Kirkland Cultural Arts Commission is seeking an artist or artist team to create an ephemeral community art mural for the Cross Kirkland Corridor on the 6th Street Railroad Signal Cabinet during Crossing Kirkland, a citywide block party along the Cross Kirkland Corridor taking place on Sept. 8.

The mural will require advance effort by the artist(s) to prepare it for community participation on Sept. 8. The artists will guide and supervise community painters who would like to contribute on Sept. 8, and complete the work as needed. The cabinet is approximately eight feet by six feet by 8 feet tall.

Crossing Kirkland is a for-neighbors-by-neighbors citywide block party along the Cross Kirkland Corridor. The event debuted in 2017 and drew more than 1,500 visitors with a mix of food trucks, games, craft projects, community organizations, and other activities. In 2018, six neighborhood-sponsored stations will stretch from Feriton Spur (Google) in the south up to NE 112th Ave. (Gold’s Gym) in the north. This year the event expands to include local music acts, this community mural project, and the new Kirkie awards for the most creative ways of traversing the CKC.
