PROJECT SUMMARY The Wing Luke Museum of the Asian Pacific American Experience (The Wing) in partnership with a community- led committee based in Seattle, WA, known as the Chinese American Legacy Artwork Project, is seeking an artist or artist team to develop site-specific public artwork that recognizes and preserves the legacy of the forced expulsion of Chinese in 1886 from Seattle. This permanent artwork will be located along the Alaskan Way promenade adjacent to the newly designed Central Waterfront, in a location along the east side of the street between South Washington and Main Streets. The selected artist will be expected to develop an artwork of appropriate scale and materials to meet the project criteria in an artistically engaging manner. Please see the images attached for the general site location (see Attachment A and B).
