MainStreet Property Group LLC, the Developer of The Carter Apartments in Redmond, WA, seeks to Procure Art by Local Artist, Dudley Carter, for Potential Restoration and Display
MainStreet Property Group LLC has issued a public call for Dudley Carter artwork, a Redmond artist and woodcarver whose artwork has gained international recognition through his life-long work. The developer plans to display the pieces in a collection of Dudley Carter art at The Carter, a 180-unit apartment complex located in downtown Redmond, WA adjacent to the Dudley Carter Park planned to open in the Fall 2016.
Dudley Carter was the inspiration for The Carter building as well as its namesake. In 1988 at the age of 96, Carter served as King County's first artist-in-residence at Slough House Park in Redmond where he carved many of his pieces on-site, allowing the public to watch and learn as he worked. The park located across the street from the project now includes Carter's Haida House Replica No. 4, which he carved in the 1980s at his home in Bellevue. It was reconstructed in the early 1990s while he was in residence at the park. The Slough House Park was pronounced the Dudley Carter Park on September 8, 2012.
MainStreet seeks to procure, through long-term loans or donation, artwork made by Dudley Carter for display at The Carter. Artwork submissions will be accepted until , December 18, 2015. To submit, please send pictures and a brief description of the art and its condition to THECARTER@MSPGROUPLLC.com.
