Oso Memorial Call

The Snohomish County Arts Commission is seeking Concepts from metal artists for this call. Details are provided here

The desire is that this area celebrate the individuality and happy memories of those that were lost. Further, there is interest in incorporating representation of butterflies within the panels to be reflective of the use of butterfly outlines in the two gateways to the Slide Memorial. To this end, this call for concepts is released to refine and expand the preliminary concept, to honor the intent of the area being a positive space.
