About the Artist

Nicole Kistler (Seattle) received a 2005 GAP to help defray material costs associated with The Duwamish Living Barge Project, a large-scale installation planned for this fall. Kistler, along with collaborating artist Sarah Kavage, will plant a barge with foliage native to the Duwamish riverside, thereby creating a green space that exhibits native growth while also offering commentary on the current environmental degradation of the river basin. She will be working with the City of Seattle and the Environmental Coalition of South Seattle to identify a safe site close to the First Avenue Bridge where the installation will be on view for a month with kayak and canoe tours of the installation planned.
