gregoire visits 4culture public art site

Governor Christine Gregoire visited White Center’s 98th Street pedestrian bridge last Thursday to recognize it as an example of federal American Recovery and Reinvestment Act dollars at work in our state. Currently under construction, this new urban connector will link the Greenbridge Village Housing Development and the community’s business district.

Artist Andy Cao has worked on the project with the King County Roads Division and Water and Land Resources Division since 2007. Gregoire acknowledged his participation in the design process and the development of his forthcoming integrated earthwork. Pillow Field will be comprised of sculpted earthen mounds formed from soil excavated during site construction and planted with chamomile. The work will occupy each of the four quadrants created by the switchback path.
