About

Betty Bastai received 2007 GAP Award funding for expenses related to the creation of Whatcom Creek Scrolls, an interactive installation that deals with the 1999 Whatcom Creek Olympic Pipeline fire and Bellingham residents’ memory of the tragic event. The installation will consist of a four-mile long drawing. The first two miles of the drawing will represent the first two miles of the creek that caught fire after the pipeline rupture. The second two miles of the drawing will represent the recovery of the creek from the dead into a life-bearing stream. The work will be shown at Mindport Gallery, Bellingham in 2009, to commemorate the 10th anniversary of the fire.
