At Chambers Creek Regional Park, the public currently places locks onto the stainless-steel guardrail cables of the Chambers Creek Bridge. The locks damage the bridge in various ways, add significant weight to the cables, and at times create structural issues. A well-designed public art piece will be constructed near the bridge to provide a safe, fun, and interactive space for the public to place locks onto, while also helping preserve the integrity of the bridge’s structure.
Scope of Work
Pierce County’s Arts Commission has selected a design for a public art piece at Chambers Creek Regional Park that compels people to place ‘Love Locks’ onto the art structure instead of the existing bridge cables. The design is reflective of the natural environment at Chambers Bay and the industrial history of the site.
Location of Artwork:
The artwork will be located close to the entrance to the pier where it can be reached by an ADA accessible route.
