With a newly completed feasibility study we are now focusing on fundraising to install luminaire art on the Pier 86 grain elevator and silo structures.
To fulfill the theme of "Seattle's Waterfront Heritage: Past, Present, Future," the initial objective is to place Nicole Kistler's "Illuminated Ghosts" on the south terminal wall during the winter of 2017.
This projected art, depicting the forested Seattle area before settlement, will demonstrate the power of illumination art and will offer the community a chance to respond to this light art.
If the public response is positive, the follow-up plan is to partner with Seattle institutions and create a five-year curated, rotating episodic illuminated art installation on the North, South and Western seaward faces of the Pier 86 structures.
This proposal would honor the site's past and current working industrial site, highlight Seattle's new Elliott Bay waterfront improvements, build community with a notable icon, and revel in Seattle's rich diverse bay and shoreline area.
To help with the expenses of a projector, the artist and technician, please donate to our FAP86 501(c)(3) link with the Seattle Parks Foundation.
