More than 200 participants added collective creativity to Western Tapestry, designed by local artist John Fleming. The 250-foot installation of brightly colored aluminum strips will be installed next year on Western Avenue directly across from the new MarketFront expansion. We’ll keep you up-to-date on the installation and the unveiling of this public art.
“It’s an honor to work with Pike Place Market as they enter this new chapter in their history,” said John. “I want this project to capture the beauty, soul and community of the Market, and to achieve that a public collaboration was the only option that made sense to me.”
John’s other works in Seattle include the award-winning Grass Blades in Seattle Center and Memory Tree at the Thornton Creek Confluence of Meadowbrook Pond.
