The artists who participate in the program should reflect James and Janie Washington’s strong belief in the healing and transcending value of art upon the human spirit. They will live and work in the Washington House and Studio, and through inspiration from the surrounding resources, (archives, library, home, gardens, etc.) bring new artwork to life and interact with the Seattle community. This interaction may come through mentoring, workshops, or presentations that will endeavor to inspire and add meaning for the participants.

The artist will prepare a final exhibition/ presentation of their work to be shared in a public opening.
Six selected artists per year will be provided with studio access and technical assistance to create works that they might not otherwise be able to.
