Pacific Hospital PDA Seeks Graphic Design for Mural

The Pacific Hospital Preservation and Development Authority (PHPDA), a Seattle city-chartered public agency focused on health equity throughout King County, is looking for a local artist to create an image to be translated into a 5’ x 5’ mosaic piece inside the Pacific Tower located in North Beacon Hill. We encourage applications from BIPOC, LGBTQIA+, and other groups of artists that have traditionally been marginalized in cultural spaces.


Our main objective is to capture the vibrant, trailblazing past, present and future of the PHPDA. You can view a timeline of our history at this link .


This mosaic is part of our 40 th Anniversary celebration. We want the image to be rendered in a comic book/graphic novel style so we can depict a narrative or story. We want to include Duwamish imagery as way to show respect to the Duwamish people and the land we reside on.


You will be working with the PHPDA Office Coordinator and Communications Manager to create the image. Seattle Mosaic Arts studio will be translating the image into a mosaic. We plan to invite various groups from the Beacon Hill community to partake in the building of the mosaic.


Please submit a short written preliminary description of your idea(s) for this work and a portfolio of at least (3) past pieces that are representative of the style we are looking for. Email your submissions to the Office Coordinator, Whitney Gerlach, at w.gerlach@phpda.org by January 7, 2022.


Flat Rate: $1,000 upon final image delivery
