Feasibility Study

The idea of art on Pier 86 has been alive since the grain terminals were built forty-six years ago. With the many changes along the waterfront since that time, and the high expectations for the Central Waterfront after the removal of the Viaduct, the idea of art on Pier 86 has found new enthusiasm through Friends of Art on Pier 86 and an organized approach to testing feasibility, options and funding.


Framework was contracted by Friends of Art on Pier 86 who received a grant from the Seattle Department of Neighborhoods to study feasibility of public art on Pier 86, with support from the Port of Seattle and fiscal sponsorship from the Seattle Parks Foundation. The study led to approval by the Port on projected art on the grain terminal, and Friends of Art on Pier 86 is pursuing funding to implement the plan.

Framework’s role was Project Lead¬†
