The Everett City Council has approved a contract with Seattle artist Susan Zoccola for the design, fabrication and installation of sculptural pieces to be placed on eleven light poles on Hoyt between Wall Street and Everett Avenue. The total contract is worth $110,000.00 with the money coming from the city’s one percent for the arts municipal budget. The poles are already in place and have a light facing the street with a second light shining down on the installed art work. Zoccola, who has done sculptures for several Puget Sound cities and public agencies, bested three other artists who submitted proposals for the project.
The Everett City Council also approved the closure of Hoyt Avenue between Wall Street and Hewitt Avenue this Saturday for an Annual Artist’s Garage Sale in front of the Schack Art Center. The closure is set for this Saturday from 9am – 4pm.
