Stop by Seattle Center’s Theater Commons this weekend to see the temporary sound artwork Windfall before it closes Wednesday, Sept. 15. Since mid-June, the delicate sound of more than 1,000 small, cast-iron wind chimes have filled this new, sustainably landscaped campus entry at Seattle Center.
On Sept. 16 and Sept. 17, from 3 to 6 p.m., artists Annie Han and Daniel Mihalyo will be at Seattle Center to meet visitors and hand out the bells that hung in the trees during Windfall’s three-month run. Take a bell and take away a memory of the artwork and the inauguration of Theater Commons.
Closing events are free and open to the public. Theater Commons is located between the Seattle Repertory Theatre and Intiman Theatre on Second Avenue North between Mercer Street and August Wilson Way.
Theater Commons is a tree-lined pedestrian corridor and terraced seating created in collaboration with the Seattle Repertory Theatre and Intiman Theatre.
Windfall was commissioned with Seattle Center 1% for Art funds and administered by the Seattle Office of Arts & Cultural Affairs.
