We are working on a collaborative art installation for the Nord Building's upcoming Alley Party, sponsored by two non-profits, Feet First and the International Sustainability Institute.
Feet First is an advocate for walkable communities, and ISI works on documenting global best practices for urban sustainability. Â They have been working with their neighbors to transform alleys from nuisances to assets. Part of the program to invigorate the alleys as a vibrant urban places is their Alley Parties. Â Each one incorporates art, music, food and drink to draw people into the alley and give people a different perspective on what they can become.
This Thursday, CAST, in collaboration with Christopher Ezzell of E Workshop, and Vashon Island artistÂ Shahreyar Ataie, Â will open an art installation that will float over their the Nord Building's section of alley, using about 600 recycled 2 liter bottles. Â It will be up through the New Year.
So come one and all! Â Did I mention there will be food, drink and music?
