6:00 pm - 10:00 pm
Pier 86 (Grain Terminal)
“Let There Be Light” will be a celebration of the Seattle waterfront, it’s history, it’s people, and it’s light shining the way into the future. The Let There Be Light program will feature two, multi day exhibits of large scale projected video art onto the head house of the Pier 86 grain terminal during December of 2018. With a canvas that is 222ft tall and exhibits that will run for a total of 11 days, this program will be the largest and longest public video art exhibits to date in the Seattle area! The exhibits will be able to be viewed from Centennial Park, Myrtle Edwards Park, as well as part of Downtown, SODO, West Seattle, Queen Anne and from the water. The long awaited art on the Pier 86 Grain Terminal features TWO different projection art installations from Northwest artists. While the two exhibits will be working within the theme of the project, they will showcase and explore very different avenues of the art. Many thanks to Seattle Department of Neighborhoods, Seattle Parks Foundation, Port of Seattle, Louis Dryfus Corp, and Expedia for the support on this amazing project!
