“The Passage,” the unusual Mother/Daughter sculpture made of recycled and scrap metal, made safe passage to Burien from California Tuesday night on a semi-truck to the Interim Art Space at the Town Square. The Grand Opening Party is this Saturday, Jan. 24th at 3pm, starting at the Burien Town Square office.

As you can see in this closeup, the “Mother” figure of the sculpture has “heavy metal” dreadlock hair made of re-used metal chains.

Evidence of artwork is already visible at the B/ IAS site, as all the light poles have colorful art on them.

Proof that artists have already been active on the site is seen in the photo above.

Be sure to make it to the grand opening party this Saturday, Jan. 24th at 3pm.

Here’s more info on B/ IAS from their website:

The Burien/ Interim Art Space (B/ IAS) is a year–long experiment, combining and transforming the concepts of art, temporary green spaces, and community gathering.

The Interim Art Space at Burien’s Town Square will be kicked off by displaying Burien’s first major temporary art piece, “The Passage,” a sculpture depicting a mother and child walking together to share and explore life. This artwork 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.
