RESCHEDULED: Artwork to open at King Street Station plaza May 3

The artist group Rebar has rescheduled the unveiling of their temporary installation Seattlight at King Street Station’s Jackson Plaza for First Thursday Art Walk, May 3. Stop by the station at 303 South Jackson St. and meet the artists as they light up the plaza, 8 to 9 p.m. (The artwork was originally scheduled to open April 20.)

Rebar’s Seattlight is a nighttime, interactive artwork 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.

Seattlight was commissioned to celebrate the new Jackson Plaza, created as part of the King Street Station restoration. The artwork will remain on view throughout 2012.

Parking is limited. The site is accessible by bus, light rail or bike.
