West Seattle art: Luna Girls on Alki installation update

We mentioned over the weekend that installation work was under way for Luna Girls on Alki, Lezlie Jane‘s sculpture paying tribute to West Seattle’s waterfront history. Our first and third photos are by David Hutchinson, who was at the site on Monday as the three sculpted life-size “bathing beauties” arrived. By the Monday afternoon rain, they were under a tent, which is where we found them late today.

The crew told us today they have some more work to do with the sculpture’s base before it’ll be done and fully on display.

The project is privately funded and being installed on a grassy berm on the east end of the grassy berms that stretch from Seacrest Dock toward Salty’s on Alki (WSB sponsor).

    Very cool!

    Here’s to everyone respecting and caring for it.

    This has been such a long time coming! The Luna Girls will be a wonderful addition to the Alki/Harbor Ave waterfront parks. Will there be signage describing their place in time/history?

    How appropriate to have a rainbow heralding their arrival…

    What ever happened to the “little mermaid” statue that was supposed to have been added to the long line of rocks out in the water at constellation park – also by Lezlie?

    I am glad to see more of her work down at the beach, but the little mermaid was supposed to come into view with low tide, and then disappear with the rising water…

    would be so beautiful at that park

      Don’t recall hearing about that and given that it’s a marine reserve, I can’t imagine approval for art actually set into some part of the beach or tidal zone … you could probably e-mail her and ask; the Luna Girls website (linked in this story) is fairly extensive and likely includes contact info. The octopus/tidepool on the sidewalk there is a favorite … as are the actual constellations! http://www.seattle.gov/parks/park_detail.asp?ID=80

Sorry, comment time is over.
