Artwork to light up King Street Station plaza, opening April 20

The San Francisco artist group Rebar will unveil their temporary installation Seattlight at King Street Station’s newly refurbished Jackson Plaza, 8 to 9 p.m., Friday, April 20. Stop by the station at 303 South Jackson St. and meet the artists as they light up the plaza.
Seattlight is a nighttime, interactive art piece designed to highlight the unseen pathways of pedestrian traffic through the plaza. The artwork lights up in response to the movements of people as they walk past and through the space.
The artwork was commissioned to celebrate the new public plaza created as part of the King Street Station restoration. The artwork will remain on view throughout 2012.
Seattlight was funded by Seattle Department of Transportation 1% for Art funds and administered by the Office of Arts & Cultural Affairs.
