The San Francisco artist team Alison Sant and Marina McDougall will design a new media artwork for the Cheshiahud Lake Union Loop, an urban trail that circles Lake Union. The new media project is expected to go live this summer. Sant and McDougall are two of four core members of the artist collaborative Studio for Urban Projects. Their projects engage themes of ecology and urbanism and have taken the form of audio tours, interactive Web sites, exhibitions and architectural environments.
Artist Sheila Klein will create artwork for the Bell Street Park, a new pedestrian-friendly linear park and green street under design in Belltown. Construction is anticipated to be complete by early 2011. Klein has more than 25 years experience in art, design and architecture. Her recent projects include artworks for Sound Transit’s Link light rail Mount Baker Station, a pedestrian bridge in Pittsburgh, Penn., the King County Metro Transit Park and Ride in Seattle’s Roosevelt neighborhood, and Los Angeles County Metro.
