Portal People

Portal People is a temporary installation to draw attention to the Portal site as a future park and public space at the corner of Bell Street and Western Avenue.

This installation consists of seven human figures in the landscape dressed in words and reflections from members of the community, collected through the Our Belltown interview project .

Portal People are installed on top of 10 million native wildflower seeds planted in the fall of 2023.  As spring emerges, a vibrant field of flowers will fill the Portal site with beauty, voice, and a vision for the future in the heart of Belltown.

Portal People is created by Belltown United  Artist-in-Residence Aaron Asis — in partnership with the City of Seattle Department of Transportation (SDOT).
