Wall Project noticed in Parks Blog

Full blog post from the Pittsburgh Parks Conservancy Blog can be found here.

"However, the park was lovely and also contained some really awesome public art courtesy of the Sound Transit Art Program (STart).  As a light rail station is constructed in the Capitol Hill neighborhood, local artists are creating temporary art installations on the construction wall.  Several of these projects are visible from the park, including this one that I just loved, Tim Marsden’s “Is That All There Is?" - Melissa McMasters

Capitol Hill Seattle article here.

"The Capitol Hill Chamber of Commerce and Sound Transit are partnering on “Stars on Broadway,” a program that shines some light on a few of the non-profit organizations that make life brighter for everyone on Capitol Hill throughout the year. In the program’s first edition, the Capitol Hill Chamber has selected five recipients to honor with a lighted star, each created by artists from the Sound Transit Art Program (STart) Wall Project. The stars will hang throughout the holiday season on the red construction wall on Broadway just south of John."

"Sound Transit curator D.K. Pan removes artist Gretchen Bennett's work from light-rail construction walls along Broadway between Pike Street and Olive Way. The work is in preparation for a new project featuring 4-foot-wide backlit stars and five artists sponsored by five area nonprofit organizations. Pan has the task of curating the work of other artists in a rotating display during the construction project from 2011 to 2014."
