The Museum of Flight is now accepting artist proposals and submissions for its 2023 Art+Flight project. During Art+Flight the Museum will boldly depart from its traditional flightpath to host a Museum-wide, community-focused celebration connecting the region’s vibrant art scene with its rich aerospace history.
Opening June 10, the project will exhibit artwork in all mediums, plus offer interactive mural painting, music, dance and plenty of family activities. Guest speakers and engaging community events will regularly enhance the celebration through January 7, 2024.
Art+Flight: Call for Artists
The Museum of Flight is seeking submissions for three opportunities:
Visual Art for Exhibition
Seeking submissions of existing visual artwork that is conceptually connected to flight, space travel or content within the Museum’s Collection for an exhibition in the historic William E. Boeing Red Barn, the birthplace of the Boeing Airplane Company.
Installation and Artist in Residence
The installation and artist in residence component will be located within the Northwest Aeroclub Room inside the William E. Boeing Red Barn, the birthplace of the Boeing Airplane Company, which is part of The Museum of Flight’s Collection and seamlessly integrated into the footprint of the Museum. Only a single artist or artist team will be selected for this opportunity. Artist Stipend: $10,000.
New Media Installation
The New Media installation will be in Room 2 within the William E. Boeing Red Barn, the birthplace of the Boeing Airplane Company, that is part of The Museum of Flight’s Collection and seamlessly integrated into the footprint of the Museum.
The artist will work closely with The Museum of Flight’s exhibition team to develop a digital and iterative experience for visitors that may change over the course of the exhibition. The resulting artwork will be an immersive installation in a light controlled environment. Artist Stipend: $10,000.
Proposals and/or submissions are due March 10, 2023.
