The Next Fifty
Next year, the Seattle Center will celebrate its 50th anniversary. The iconic public space made its debut during 1962 World’s Fair, drawing attention for the futuristic-looking Science Center and Monorail. Seattle Center is gearing up for seven months of anniversary-centric programming called The Next Fifty. Beginning in April 2012, each month will be dedicated to a different focus, ranging from science and technology to global health to commerce and the innovation economy. The theme of art, culture and design will last from April to October and include a wide spectrum of temporary art displays. The Next Fifty will award a total of $500,000 ($75,000 set aside for youth artists 24 years old and younter) to artists whose vision matches the criteria of the art, culture and design committee. Projects can be from a variety of mediums, from screenings to concerts to multi-disciplinary events. The deadline to apply is July 22.
