Phase One: What's possible? - COMPLETED MAY 2016
Examine the Feasibility of Public Art on the Pier 86 Structures

Phase Two: What's preferable? - COMPLETED JUNE 2016
Port of Seattle stipulated only art that does not touch the 50 year-old structure, thus Luminaire or Projection Art

Phase Three: City of Seattle, Community Partnership Award -  2017

The City of Seattle awarded $78,000 to Friends of Art of Pier 86 for Let There be Light to project illuminated art onto Pier 86. A pilot image will be projected for three months during winter, and a different image will be projected at the end of 2018.  (Community match: $99,950)
