NWSSA Occidental Park Exhibition September 3rd-5th, 2015
NWSSA is partnering with the Seattle Downtown Association and Arundel Books to put on a sculpture show in Occidental Park over the weekend of September 3-5. The show starts on Thursday; that evening is the September First Thursday Artwalk in Pioneer Square - and Occidental Park is smack in the middle of the gallery traffic and a well known spot for First thursday events.
Anyone who wants to participate is invited! We have space for 50-60 sculptures.
Set up is Thursday at 9am. We'll need to put together the pedestals and a pop up or two. At noon is a concert in the park that will bring a few hundred spectators. After that, Artwalk traffic begins and we can expect thousands of people to walk through by evening.
At around 9pm, we'll move the sculptures indoors into Arundel Books for safekeeping. The next day, they all go back outside by 11am in order to catch the eye of professionals in the area (Pioneer Square is a hotbed for architectural and interior design firms) for potential networking and sales. The park is very busy on Fridays with locals and tourists.
Saturday, we'll set them up in the morning, and then what sculptures are not sold will need to be picked up by 1pm so we can break down and be out of the way in time for a Sounders Rally.
Artists will need to commit to helping with set-up or tear down and spending some time with the show while it is up. If it's anything like the Volunteer Park show, there will be lots of people interested in your work to talk to!
For sales, a 20% commission will be split between the NWSSA and the Seattle Parks Department.
September 3rd: 9 am set up
September 5th 1 pm tear down
