Western Tapestry — Pike Place Market

The long concrete wall running along Western Avenue has often been considered a blight to Pike Place Market. WESTERN TAPESTRY offers a colorful change. 1,700 shimmering aluminum strips will be suspended above the sidewalk.

During public workshops, 200 people from the community added their designs to the aluminum strips. The base colors are derived from the menagerie of fruits, vegetables, fish, and crafts found in the Market.
