WWU Art Students to Present Ideas for Public Art in Bellingham’s Roundabouts at City Hall March 9

  • WWU Art 334 students on site of the planned roundabout at James Street and Bakerview Road intersection.

Students from Western Washington University’s College of Fine and Performing Arts will present proposals for public art in up to four of Bellingham’s roundabouts to officials from the City of Bellingham from 3-5 p.m. on Thursday, March 9, in the City Council chambers.

The 10 students from WWU instructor Werner Klotz’s Art 334 class will present conceptual drawings and landscapes around their ideas of what the spaces could potentially look like to members of the city’s Parks and Recreation, Public Works, and Planning and Community Development departments.

“These spaces truly are a blank canvas,” said Klotz. “And some of these student projects are, frankly, pretty spectacular, so we are excited to see how the city reacts to them.”

The presentations are open to the public as well. City Hall is located at 210 Lottie Street in Bellingham. For more information, contact Werner Klotz at (360) 650-3660 or werner.klotz@wwu.edu.
