West Seattle art: Sculpture installation @ Junction Plaza Park

(WSB photo)

10:57 AM: You’ll see something new at Junction Plaza Park (42nd/Alaska) next time you go by: The 20-foot-tall kinetic sculpture that’s been in the works for a while. We last reported on the plan when concepts were shown at a Junction open-house event during last February’s West Seattle Art Walk; now, local artist Troy Pillow has completed the work, and it’s being installed this morning. It’s funded by public-benefit money from local development as well as a city grant. Update later, after it’s fully installed!

ADDED: By the time we got back in late afternoon, the base was already in shadow, but you can see the top of the sculpture:

    Oh yea!! I love kinetic sculptures. I used to walk the studio grounds annually of an awesome kinetic sculpture artist on Orcas Island – watching the art twirl and spin between the trees. It always made me feel like a little kid watching such HUGE metal shapes seemingly defy gravity.

    Isn’t there going to be some sort of ceremony? I have been waiting to see the sculpture and I have been watching for a presentation, hopefully, including the artist/s.

      Yes, adding to the story soon. We know the sculpture’s name now, too!

    Love the shadow play on the building too. Cool sculpture!

Sorry, comment time is over.
