St. Andrew’s seeks original artwork for its indoor columbarium

St. Andrew’s Episcopal Church is seeking an artist to create site-specific original artwork for its indoor columbarium. The church is located at 7410 South 12th Street, Tacoma. This opportunity is open to established artists living in the Northwest.   We are open to consider a variety of media.

The vision for this project is for a signature artwork of exceptional and enduring quality. The site-specific art work should evoke Christian faith, resurrection and hope and, if possible, the mission of the church which is “To Know Christ and Make Christ Known.”

The location for the only piece of art to be installed in the newly remodeled indoor columbarium is located on the lower level of St. Andrews.

Specific information, measurements, and photos can be found on the St. Andrew’s web site:  If you have questions or if you want to view the site, please contact Margo Fleshman at [email protected] or Fr. Martin Yabroff at [email protected].


The application deadline is May 15, 2017.   The Columbarium Committee will review and select the artist by June 30.  The target completion and installation of the artwork is November 1, 2017.

The proposal should include:

  • The artist’s statement of intent and a description of the project, concept and approach.
  • Samples of the artist previous work.
  • An estimate of the costs and expenses for the project.
