The CKC just keeps getting better. Here are some of the projects that are making it happen.
The Kirkland Cultural Arts Commission
selected creative duo Jake “DKoy” Wagoner and Mike Lucero to install a large format mural located underneath the 85th street overpass. The project entitled “What is…” was created August 2 through the 16, 2017 and community members were invited to express their thoughts in response to prompts. The completed mural celebrates the CKC and wonderfully reflects Kirkland as a community.
The mural is made possible with funding from 4Culture
and was the Cultural Arts Commission’s first project in implementing the Cross Kirkland Corridor Art Integration Plan
Art on the Corridor
Building off the CKC Master Plan (completed in 2013), the Cultural Arts Commission has lead efforts to imagine how art in a variety of forms including performance, interactive, ephemeral and permanent, can be incorporated into the Corridor experience with the creation of the Cross Kirkland Corridor Art Integration Plan (PDF-8 MB). Share your ideas about art on the Corridor by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org. Stay updated on public participation opportunities by visiting the Cultural Arts Commission page or signing up for the Kirkland Arts E-bulletin.
In early 2015, the City of Kirkland purchased several pieces of the historic Kalakala Ferry, which was built at the Lake Washington Shipyards (present day Carillon Point) in 1935. A committee with members from the City’s Cultural Arts Commission, Park Board, Transportation Commission, interested citizens, and Kalakala advocates has formed to develop concepts, seek artists, and raise funds to refurbish and eventually install the historic pieces on the Corridor. To learn more about the committee’s efforts, contact Lorrie McKay at 425-587-3009 or email@example.com.
