Washington State will become the first state to embed an artist in a statewide agency, bringing a creative approach to advancing the agency’s goals like improving safety, reducing congestion, promoting economic vitality, supporting multimodal in transportation systems and creating healthier communities.
Nov. 20, 2018 — An artist-in-residence will spend a year working with the Washington State Department of Transportation to help develop new ways to achieve agency goals through a first-of-its-kind program created by ArtPlace America and Transportation for America, a program of Smart Growth America. WSDOT will be the first state agency in the country to pilot an artist-in-residence program.
Recognized as a tool for pioneering innovative and creative solutions, artist-in-residence programs have been piloted across the nation in municipal governmental agencies, including the Los Angeles and Seattle DOTs, but never before at a statewide agency.
Several organizations collaborated on the artist-in-residence program. ArtPlace America is providing a $125,000 grant for the program, including a $40,000 stipend for the selected artist and $25,000 for a final project(s) the artist and staff develop. Transportation for America (T4A) will administer both the funds and the overall program, including providing staff and consulting assistance. The State Smart Transportation Initiative (SSTI) will also provide staff support. Both T4A and SSTI are programs of Smart Growth America. WSDOT will supply in-kind contributions consisting of work space for the selected artist and staff time for agency workers to collaborate on the groundbreaking new program.
Date issued: November 20, 2018
Application deadline: January 7, 2019

FDA: FDA warns marketers of products labeled as dietary supplements that contain tianeptine for making unproven claims to treat serious conditions, including opioid use disorder
For Immediate Release
November 20, 2018
The U.S. Food and Drug Administration today posted warning letters issued to two companies for the illegal marketing of products labeled as dietary supplements that contain tianeptine, a chemical compound that companies are illegally claiming treats opioid use disorder (OUD), pain and anxiety, and other unlawful and unproven claims. These actions follow reports to the FDA of serious adverse events associated with the use of products containing tianeptine...
Dietary supplements containing tianeptine are adulterated under the Federal Food, Drug, and Cosmetic Act because tianeptine is an unsafe food additive and should not be present in dietary supplements. The FDA has not approved tianeptine for any use...
The U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) warned in August that clinical effects of tianeptine abuse and withdrawal can mimic opioid toxicity and withdrawal. The CDC also reported there has been a rise in tianeptine exposure calls to U.S. poison control centers during 2014–2017, suggesting a possible emerging public health risk.
