Held on 05/03/2015. In attendance: Bill, Wendy, Barbara, Bonnie, Colleen, Raina, Antonia, Lisa
Bandshell (similar to this
)- Dan on the river will take it temporarily (it has to be moved from storage at Dale’s by June 1), but the goal is to install at permanent spot, possibly at Marra Farms
. In temporary spot at Dan’s place it will be visible by river and get some notice and maybe press about our scrappy arts group… Marra Farm may have some funding. Parks Dept. say they want community input but haven’t taken steps to aquire it, and historically haven’t always listened. Bill will email Raina, Dan, Dale and Meredith regarding: next steps and getting moving equipment. Dan has a bobcat, we still need a flatbed truck. Possibly SPARKS and Dan can fund rental.
- Bill is processing over 50 contracts for artists and other people involved in this summer-long festival full of art on the Duwamish… big event with half million in funding grants. From Jack Block Park
to tour of the City of Tukwila, along and parallel to river. Known projects: East Asian Festival -with lanterns on the river (need ideas for biodegradable/ecologically friendly material for lanterns), Latino Festival, flower arch, lucha libre, looking for trajineras
. Goal is to help different groups organize and complete projects.
Artist Catherine Grisez
is creating Cultivate
to be installed in June for the Duwamish Revealed. It’s a recycled art project with help of the community. It will be made of large panels hanging off the South Park bridge, and will require lots of aluminum cans and plastic 1 liter and 2 liter bottles…. Art/work parties are tentatively scheduled every week in May: Wednesday evening at Loretta’s Northwestern
, and Saturday afternoon at Lowercase Brewery
(no age limit.) Check the Facebook page

International Market Night at Concord Elementary
