KIRKLAND, Wash. – The Kirkland Cultural Arts Commission invites you to a continued conversation regarding future art on the Cross Kirkland Corridor (CKC).  The meeting will be held on January 20, 2016 from 5:30 to 7:30 p.m. at the Kirkland Justice Center, 11740 Northeast 118th Street Kirkland, WA 98034, in the Totem Lake Room. Guy Michaelsen, Principal of the Berger Partnership, and the consultant tasked with developing a plan to integrate art on the corridor, will lead the conversation. Registration is appreciated at artontheckc.eventbrite.comlinks to external site.

In 2012, the City of Kirkland purchased a 5.75 mile segment of the 42-mile Eastside Rail Corridor, naming it the Cross Kirkland Corridor.  A Master Plan process for the development of the CKC was launched in 2013 and the Kirkland City Council adopted the Master Plan in 2014. The Master Plan established goals for the CKC: (1) Connect Kirkland, (2) Foster a greener Kirkland, (3) Shape a place unique to Kirkland and (4) Activate Kirkland and evolve over time. Building from these goals, the Cultural Arts Commission is leading efforts to develop plans for how art, in a variety of forms, including performance, interactive, temporary and permanent, can be incorporated in the Corridor experience.

On November 16, 2015 an initial planning session presentation took place to gather public input. Additional ideas and input can be directed to arts@kirklandwa.gov.
