About the Artist
Michael Magrath (Seattle) received 2007 GAP Award funding for transportation and casting costs to support Lot’s Tribe II, a temporary public art installation featuring life-sized sculptures of Iraqi civilian war victims cast in salt. The figures (originally installed in Pioneer Square, Seattle on September 11, 2006 and left to erode) will be recast and an additional figure will be added to the group. The work will travel across country and be mounted temporarily in various cities, en route to its final destination in New York City for the anniversary of 9/11.
