WSDOT Artist-In-Residence

Smart Growth America

Washington will become the first state to embed a full-time artist in a statewide agency, bringing in a creative approach to advancing the agency’s goals like improving safety, reducing congestion, promoting economic vitality, supporting multimodal transportation systems, and creating healthier communities.

With the support of ArtPlace America, Transportation for America (a program of Smart Growth America), and the Washington State Department of Transportation (WSDOT) are creating a new one-year artist-in-residence program, the first of its kind in the country. See site for full details and criteria.
