The Gateway Island art project is a long-time-in-the-making project to create and install a landmark piece of public art in the “Gateway Island” on Siskiyou Boulevard in front of Fire Station 1. The City each year sets aside a small amount of its transient occupancy tax collections for public art and the City’s Public Arts Commission, recognizing the prominence and importance of this location, has been saving that money for seven years in order to purchase a large-scale piece of public art. Following a competitive process in which three artists were invited to submit concepts for artwork in that location, a selection committee chose a sculpture titled “Gather,” by Seattle artist Susan Zoccola.
