It was a dark and stormy First Thursday Art Walk night, and the artwork at King Street Station was not alight. Thanks to those of you who came out to see San Francisco artist group Rebar’s temporary installation Seattlight at King Street Station’s Jackson Plaza last night. We had hoped to open the project, but the artwork was damaged in transit to Seattle. The artwork is now projected to open in the next several weeks. We’ll keep you posted, so stay tuned.
Seattlight is a nighttime, interactive art piece designed to highlight the unseen pathways of pedestrian traffic through the plaza. The artwork will be on view through the end of the year and will light up in response to the movements of people as they walk past and through the space.
