Seattle Parks and Recreation is hosting a public meeting to gather input on a proposed public art piece at Jefferson Park that will be skate-able. The meeting will take place at 7 p.m. on Mon., July 15 at Jefferson Community Center – 3801 Beacon Ave S. in Seattle.
Red Bull and X Games gold medalist Torey Pudwill approached Seattle Parks and Recreation about commissioning an artist to design and fabricate a unique piece of skate-able art for Seattle. Parks worked with Red Bull to choose a suitable park for the art. Artist CJ Rench from Hood River, Oregon, was selected from an Open Call to Artists to fabricate the piece. Seattle Parks will work with Mr. Rench to make sure that the design and size of the art piece is appropriate for the location.
At the meeting, Seattle Parks will present the history of the proposed project, proposed placement options in the park, introduce the artist and gather input from the community. CJ Rench will discuss his ideas and answer questions. Red Bull representatives will also discuss the project.
Jefferson Park is located at 3801 Beacon Ave. S. The Jefferson Park Skatepark opened in early 2012 and features the deepest bowl in the City.
