Friends of Art on Pier 86 (FAP86) would like to invite you to attend and participate in our Let There Be Light program Community Workshop. 
 

Sunday September 30th
2pm-5pm

Located at Expedia
645 Elliott Avenue West, Seattle, Washington
FREE - Open to the Public


The Let There Be Light program will feature two, multi day exhibits of large scale projected art in the winter of 2018.

The projected art will be celebrating the “Past, Present and Future” of our waterfront and all peoples of the PNW. The selected artists will also be from the PNW staying in line with our theme of celebrating the PNW. 

------------------



In coordination with the theme of “celebrating all peoples of the region” FAP86 is inviting the public to tell us how they celebrate solstice in their culture with our Let There Be Light workshop. 

The workshop will include an introduction & presentation of the program by Program Coordinator Mollie Bryan and Chairperson Betty Winfield. 
The selected artists for the exhibits will be providing a short presentation of their work as well as talk about their vision for their exhibits for the program. 
A short Q&A will follow allowing the public to ask questions about the program. 
Following the presentations will be an lantern making workshop that will allow the public to write or draw their solstice rituals on the lanterns that will be used as inspiration for the December exhibit. 


The Let There Be Light workshop will be held on Sunday September 30th at the new Expedia Office on Elliot that directly overlooks the site. Thanks Expedia! 

Workshop is FREE & open to the public.
RSVP on Facebook  for updates and more information.

About the Let There be Light Program


Exhibits are scheduled winter 2018.
Dates TBA



Pier 86 is a testimony to both land and sea; grains collected from the interior continent are then shipped to distant peoples. The symbolism of using Pier 86 roots Seattle’s connection to Elliot Bay, the ancestral home of the Native peoples, the cities original industrial development and more recently, tech and tourism commerce. 
“Let There Be Light” will be a celebration of the Seattle waterfront, it’s history, it’s people, and light shining the way into the future. 
The “Let There Be Light” project will showcase the great impact projection art can have while leaving no footprint or waste and hopefully encourage a great exhibit in the future on the entire external silos site.
