In the Spring of 2012, 4Culture, working in partnership with King Co. Wastewater Treatment Division, issued a Call for Artists to creatively engage the public around issues of water quality, environmental stewardship, and wastewater treatment. Artists from all genres were invited to apply.
At the project orientation, I had the chance to tour the Brightwater Facility with poets, installation artists, performers, painters, and others. We were all totally fascinated with the inner workings of Brightwater, and the tales of woe regarding what gets flushed and why it shouldn’t. The Conveyance from Bothell to Point Wells is our project “site” and our work is just beginning.
