Final Project: Creative Commons

Starting tomorrow, with four weeks left in the program, we begin working on our final design project called Creative Commons. Here is the official project brief:


Teaming up with the City of Seattle, the Seattle Art Museum is commissioning Re+Vision: Design Your (Neighbor)hood to create a design intervention, or series of interventions, that help bring art to life, through the creation of a meaningful new public space (or spaces) that link the three existing SAM sites: Seattle Art Museum, Seattle Asian Art Museum, and Olympic Sculpture Park.

Design interventions should seek specifically to engage Seattle's teen population and appeal to their interests, needs, and desires.

Final designs must:

> Be sited within SAM’s “creative commons". This could include any of the actual SAM sites. For example, you may choose to site your design within the Art Ladder of SAM downtown.
> Link all three SAM sites. The link does not have to be physical.
> Attempt to inspire, engage, and activate Seattle teens.
> Thoughtfully connect to surrounding neighborhoods and communities.
> Be free and open to the public.
> Be accessible to visitors of all physical abilities.
> Be mindful of environmental impact.

Final Presentation/Reception:
August 7, 2008 6:00 - 8:00 pm
Alvord Art Lab, Olympic Sculpture Park

Show will stay up through August 22, 2008
Tuesday - Saturday 10:00 am - 5:00pm
