Reception & Opening for River Mile 1

Reception & Opening for River Mile 1

On Monday 4-29-13 at noon Zac will join renowned artist Buster Simpson for a lunchtime chat about their permanent works at the new Army Corps headquarters building on the east bank of the Duwamish River in Seattle. Simpson's piece Aerie, commissioned by the GSA, morphs as the viewer passes by, reflecting the Corps changing missions from national defense to protection of the environment. Both sculptures incorporate recycled and locally sourced materials, in line with the LEED platinum Oxbow building. At 12:30 Army Corps Colonel Bruce Estok will commission the Historic Duwamish River Mile 1 sculpture by placing a brass survey marker in its receptacle.
