Running May 8 through 31 is an exhibit of work by Seattle sculptor and fabricator Peter Reiquam.
“Win or Lose! A Collection of Successful & Failed Public Art Proposals 1985 – Present” represents the development of Reiquam’s design proposals for a variety of public sites — ranging from sculptural seating installations in parks, transit sites and university campuses to illuminated sculptures, narrative panels, space ships, and giant corn stalks.

Made from a variety of materials including metals, stone, concrete, glass and lighting, these diverse concepts share a desire to create durable, well-crafted and meaningful works that speak to the uniqueness of each one’s site and to do so with a balance of humor, elegance and sophistication.
This is how Reiquam describes the exhibit: “The scale models, drawings and photographs document my thought process as I develop site-specific proposals and offer insight into the fabrication process. The models were created as a tool for communicating my ideas to a selection committee — a way of describing the full-scale sculpture three-dimensionally and to address questions of form, scale, color and materials as well as content and context provided by a given site.
There are many ways to approach a career in the arts and this is mine, win or lose.”
