Junction Plaza Park Public Art Feedback
February 11th, 2016
Junction Plaza Park was dedicated in 2010. Its development resulted from a tremendous community effort that transformed an old gas station site into a park and plaza. The original park design called for the installation of an art piece, but at the time of construction, funds did not allow.
Now funding ($50,000) has been allocated for the creation of a significant piece of public art to be installed at the north/central border of the park. Through an international “call for artists” and formal selection process, West Seattle artist Troy Pillow was selected as the sculptor.
The Junction Plaza Park Public Art Selection Committee reviewed many applications and selected Troy based on his work alone. It is exciting though that he also happens to be a local artist and that such a significant piece of public art will be made for Junction Plaza Park by a West Seattle resident.
This public art initiative, and the committee created to shepherd it, is a collaboration between the West Seattle Junction Association (WSJA), the Junction Neighborhood Organization (JuNO), and Seattle Parks and Recreation. At this time we are inviting the broader community and Junction neighborhood to give us feedback on the direction of the artwork.
Here you will find the proposed designs and a link to a short survey to gather your feedback online. This will be available at 6:00pm on February 11th and will be open for one week (until February 18th).
