City seeking art for 2022 Sunshine Festival

The Sequim Sunshine Festival Committee is seeking applications from artists to be considered to develop artwork for the 2022 Sequim Sunshine Festival poster and promotional materials, city representatives said in July.

The selected artist will be commissioned by the City of Sequim to develop an agreed-upon concept and final piece of art to be used for promotional materials and merchandise to market and support the festival, Barbara Hanna, City of Sequim Communications and Marketing Director, said in a press release on July 19.

The selected artist will receive $500 upon completion of the final artwork and have a table or booth at the 2022 Sequim Sunshine Festival marketplace, while the City of Sequim will own the final artwork.

To apply, artists will need to submit an application and three digital samples of their existing work. Deadline for submissions is 4 p.m. Monday, Aug. 16; only digital applications will be considered.

To apply, go to:

All entries will be juried by a subcommittee of the Sequim Sunshine Festival planning committee by Monday, Aug. 22, and artists will be notified of their status by Wednesday, Aug. 24.

The first Sequim Sunshine Festival was held in March of 2020 “to help shake the winter blues and celebrate the approaching spring and summer seasons,” city representatives say. Highlights of the festival included the Sun Fun Color Run, Interactive Light Experience and illuminated drone show.

And while a modified version of the festival was held in 2021 because of COVID-19 restrictions, a full festival is being planned for 2022.
