Update: April 13, 2018
The Park Board approved the recommendation of the Joint Arts Committee for Meejin Yoon’s proposed signature art piece “Stepwell”, and art plan which highlights both current and future placements of art and ways in which they should be marked. The budget for the art plan and signature piece are all below budget of 1% of the total bond allocation.
There are a few placement options on Havermale Island being considered for Stepwell, and a final placement recommendation will be offered by the Joint Art Committee to the Park Board at a later date. Construction of the piece will vary based on exact placement, but will be completed by early 2020 in alignment with the bond.
Update: March 28, 2018
The Joint Art Committee is recommending Meejin Yoon’s “Step Well” for the signature art piece for the park. The recommendation will go before the Park Board for consideration on April 12. Share your thoughts by emailing the Park Board at email@example.com.
Inspired by environmental themes of Expo '74, this interactive piece measures approximately 28' x 18'. (For comparison, it's larger than the Red Wagon in the park.) If approved, it will be composed of steel and wood, and sited on Havermale Island.
