Delayed Children's Play Area in Seattle Still A Go

Seattle officials came out to reaffirm their continued plans to create a play area and showcase for local artists at the Seattle Center. Delayed by a 50th anniversary celebration and possibly by the need to find a permanent space for one of its planned exhibits, the playground and showcase are still on schedule. A mounting public boycott of the Chihuly exhibit may, however, drive things once more into delay.

Plans for an artistic playground and a showcase for local artists at Seattle Center haven’t been abandoned, said Robert Nellams, director of Seattle Center.


The Arts at Play area for children was delayed temporarily, but deliberately, Nellams said.


“The delay, if you can call it a delay, was something that we asked for because we were doing a little something called our 50th anniversary out in the plaza,” he said.
