UPDATE: See Junction Plaza Park art-concept options


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.

    Love it!   Pick a color, any color.

    Glad to see the city has limitless cash. I guess the homeless and traffic problems are all solved.

      Part of this is funded by the city’s grants for neighborhood projects. You can find out about them here:
      These grants have funded myriad projects in our community and the rest of the city, including traffic projects (see the Neighborhood Park and Street Fund).

      But if you think the program should be suspended or canceled and its money put in some other fund, certainly let the City Council know.

    Troy Pillow creates visually stunning pieces  and this sculpture is going to be a beautiful addition to West Seattle.  Excited to see it in place!

Sorry, comment time is over.
