Interim sculpture installation set for first of year in Burien

"The Passage," a sculpture depicting a mother and child walking together to share and explore life, will kick off Burien's interim art space project on Jan. 2 and 3.

The artwork was first created by Dan Das Mann and Karen Cusolito for the 2005 Burning Man Arts Festival.

The figures stand 30 and 20 feet tall and are fabricated out of recycled and scrap metal.

The interim art space will occupy a temporary vacant one-acre parcel of Burien's Town Square project.

On Jan. 2, the sculpture will be installed.

The next day, an event, beginning at 4 p.m. will celebrate the new art space.

"The event will have fire, sculptures, dancers-it should be amazing," declared Gina Kallman, Burien's cultural arts supervisor.
