6:40 PM: Until 8 pm, you can help decide which kinetic-sculpture concept will soon grace the north side of Junction Plaza Park – a 20-foot moving sculpture, with a stainless-steel base, in front of the tallest blank wall in West Seattle. The concepts are being shown off at an open house right now at Cupcake Royale (northeast corner of California/Oregon).
Troy Pillow is the artist chosen for the installation, funded by public-benefit money from area development as well as a Department of Neighborhoods grant. He’s here to answer your questions (as are reps from the West Seattle Junction Association and Junction Neighborhood Organization). Pillow says the concepts represent the “coming together” nature of The Junction, present and past; as you can see from the renderings above (which aren’t the only ones), color choices are up for discussion too. He says there will be “uplighting” for the installation.
Along with printed-out renderings of the design options, you can also look at animated versions on screens when you stop by – there’s been a steady stream of people. If you just can’t get here tonight, you’ll be able to offer opinions online too – stand by for the info on that.
ADDED EARLY FRIDAY: Here’s where to go to see all the options, and to tell the project team what you think.
