12/27/08 UPDATE: Due to weather conditions, the installation of the sculpture The Passage into Burien’s Town Square (BTB Advertiser) has been POSTPONED from Sat. Jan, 3rd to Saturday, January 24th, starting at 3pm

The Passage, a sculpture depicting a Mother/Daughter, will be installed at the Burien/ Interim Art Space, a year-long experiment combining and transforming the concepts of art, temporary green spaces, and community gathering.

According to Kathy Justin:

“The opening ceremnony for the B/ IAS project and The Passage has been postponed because of the weather.

The new date is set for Saturday January 24th starting at 3pm.”

The Passage is a sculpture depicting a mother and child walking together to share and explore life, and was first created by Dan Das Mann and Karen Cusolito for the 2005 Burning Man Arts Festival. The figures stand a dramatic 30′ and 20′ tall and are fabricated out of recycled and scrap metal.

Here are two videos that will give you a better idea of exactly what’s coming to Burien:

The interim art space will occupy a temporarily vacant one-acre parcel of Burien’s Town Square project:

This exciting space will not only showcase art, but will be an energetic gathering place for Burien’s citizens. B/ IAS will be a working canvas that will be transformed by the efforts of both artists and the community throughout the year. The project will conclude a year later when the sculpture is removed and construction begins on another phase of the Town Square.

B/ IAS is a collaboration between Ignition Northwest, Burien Arts Commission, 4Culture, Urban Partners and GGLO.
