The Seeking Place: Part of the redevelopment of Riverfront was an Art Master Plan, taking note of existing art and marking locations for future pieces. In addition to Stepwell, Spokane Arts commissioned a second piece as part of the bond project. Four finalists were selected by the Joint Arts committee with key criteria in mind: interactive, accessible, welcoming, durable, and made by regional artists. A final selection was made by the Park Board.
The chosen piece by local artist Sarah Thompson Moore is called The Seeking Place. This artwork offers art-lovers a virtual walk-through sculpture of anodized aluminum posts/panels simulating columnar basalt. LED lighting is included and designed to cast interesting shadows in and around the structure. See additional details about the art piece. The Seeking Place interactive sculpture is anticipated to be completed in the fall.
