Redmond, WA – The City of Redmond’s design contractor, Opsis Architecture, seeks an artist or artist team to develop a public art master plan for integrated art throughout the new Redmond Senior & Community Center. The facility is being developed on Redmond’s Municipal Campus next to Redmond City Hall and along the Sammamish River Trail in Redmond, Washington and is projected to open in late 2023. 

This is a creative opportunity to utilize art integration to link people to their city and each other. The artist and design team’s role is to reflect the design principles for the project, as well as enhance the patron experience so that the Redmond Senior & Community Center connects with Redmond’s increasingly diverse community through innovation and creative energy. 

The selected artist(s) will be considered a sub-consultant to the design team and provide art design services to Opsis Architecture and the City. Interested parties can view the call at and submit application materials to Chris Roberts at More information about the Redmond Senior & Community Center project is available at
