MEET THE ARTIST: ‘Tracing Alki’ celebration at Pump Station 38 next Saturday

Three years after we first reported on the art planned for the Pump Station 38 overhaul in the 1400 block of Alki Avenue SW, the work is complete, and artist Sarah Thompson Moore will be visiting to answer questions about it during a casual celebration. Seattle Public Utilities invites you to stop by between 10 am and noon next Saturday (December 2nd). The work spans the site from a cabinet to the walkway to new safety fencing, and was inspired by an old topographic map of the area. SPU says the pump-station work – mostly to increase its capacity – is finished too, but the newly planted area will remain taped off until sometime next month so it has a chance to get established.

    I’ve been following the progress of this installation since this past summer on my almost daily bike route. The planning and detail that went into this is really exceptional. Congrats and thank you to the artist for turning an eyesore into beautiful art ! So. Many. Mosaic. Pieces.  So many hours of work. It’s gorgeous and fun and inspiring. Great work.

Sorry, comment time is over.
