Seattle City Hall Exhibitions

City Hall Lobby Gallery
Anne Focke Gallery
Seattle, WA

The city of Seattle seeks artist and community exhibition proposals for display in City Hall galleries in 2008. The 2008 exhibition cycle will begin in February.

Two galleries at Seattle City Hall — the City Hall Lobby Gallery and the Anne Focke Gallery — focus on works that reflect the broad diversity of Seattle's communities and highlight the work of regional artists and community organizations. Group or solo exhibitions are welcome and will be displayed from six to eight weeks. Exhibitions showcase the life of the city through the work of its departments, the activities of its residents, and its relationships with neighbors, sister cities and trading partners.

The galleries are equipped to display 2-D materials, however 3-D exhibitions will be considered, providing applicants can furnish necessary display cases. Video and media works will not be accepted. The City Hall Lobby Gallery features eight, 6' x 4' double-sided, metal, peg-board panels. The Anne Focke Gallery features a 120-foot long display wall (with professional hanging system) and is located on the L2 level of City Hall. All applications must be submitted digitally through the CaFÉ™ online system.
