Help design and fabricate artwork for Greenwood Park fence

July 8th, 2011 · No Comments

Volunteers with Vision Greenwood Park are inviting the community to help design and fabricate metal artwork that will be incorporated into a fence at Greenwood Park’s new Community Garden. Greenwood Park is at 602 N. 87th St.

VGP is working with local sculptor Kim David Hall, who is donating his time to the project. An initial design for the artwork has been created. The left side of the fence would include a bicycle, pinwheel, bus and sailboat, with mountains in the background.

The right side would include more bicycles and flowers.

The Fremont Avenue side of the garden will include a low concrete wall (to support raised garden beds) with a metal fence on top. We will attach metallic art pieces onto the fence and construct an archway entrance into the garden…The art pieces draw on the Interurban as a creative theme linking the historical trolley line with the current bike route.

This theme represents the Greenwood neighborhood and ties into other artistic and interpretive elements in the existing park.

Later in July and August, you can join Kim David Hall in his professional studio on South Lake Union on the metal work to fabricate the art pieces.

Community members are invited to a meeting from 7-8:30 p.m. Monday, at 9538 Dayton Ave., to finalize the design and draft full-scale sketches.

Please RSVP for the meeting to the VGP Steering Committee at Visiongreenwood@gmail.com.
