Austin artist/architects Robert Gay and Lucy Begg (Thoughtbarn) rolled up their sleeves this week to build Ghost Prairie, their public art work for Tacoma’s Prairie Line Trail. Energetic students from the School of the Arts (SOTA) are assisting in assembling and installing the 25′-long sculpture, which glows at night and will be sited in the heart of the University of Washington-Tacoma (UWT) campus. Ghost Prairie and seven other temporary art works by Tacoma artists will be unveiled tomorrow, Nov. 12, during a free public tour starting at 2pm at Tollefson Square. Congratulations, artists!
