FOLLOWUP: Artist Troy Pillow chosen for Junction Plaza Park project

Another quick note from tonight’s Southwest District Council meeting: An artist has been chosen for the Junction Plaza Park project (42nd SW & SW Alaska). Susan Melrose from the West Seattle Junction Association told the SWDC that the decision had been made at a meeting earlier in the evening: The artist will be West Seattle resident Troy Pillow, whose public art you can see here. He also is the artist commissioned for The Whittaker (there’s some information on that plan in our report from last December’s city Design Commission meeting). The $25,000 budget for this project was part of the “public benefit” from what became the Spruce project (3922 SW Alaska). No specific design yet, Melrose said, but she says Pillow is “very collaborative.” Watch for updates.

    Quite a nice portfolio on Mr. Pillow’s website. Exciting to get something lovely at this location.

    Impressive work.
    It is very nice to see public art that actually looks like art.
    So often it seems to be a blob of nothing that is only enjoyed by a few who consider themselves the elite and expert of “art”.

    This work can be enjoyed by all. Refreshing!
