Friends of Art on Pier 86 wants to hear from You!

Art on Pier 86 flierA group of local volunteers are exploring the possibility of bringing art to the iconic grain silos and elevator located at Pier 86 on the Seattle waterfront north of Myrtle Edwards Park. A steering committee has been formed called the Friends of Art on Pier 86 (FAP86). Their charter is to determine the feasibility of adding art to the existing structures without compromising the functionality of the facility.  With support from a $25,000 award from the Neighborhood Matching Fund, they have hired a consultant to conduct a feasibility study of potential public art on Pier 86 structures. The study will examine design parameters, surface media, thematic ideas, and cost and maintenance considerations.  They want to hear from you!  Attend the forum on September 29 at 7:00 p.m. at the SAM Sculpture Park Pavilion to learn more about the project and provide your own ideas!
