by artists Annie Han and Daniel Mihalyo of Seattle-based Lead Pencil Studio The “Non-Sign II” art installation at the new Peace Arch Land Port of Entry in Blaine, Washington was recently recognized in the Americans for the Arts 2011 Public Art Network Year in Review. It was one of 47 projects out of 430 entries and the single awardee of four GSA entries this year.
The most amazing piece of public art I have ever seen...The “Non-Sign II” art installation - Peace Arch - Blaine, WA
Non-sign II, a sculpture at Blaine's Peace Arch border crossing by Lead Pencil Studio. According to The Stranger blog "The Slog" it was commissioned by the federal government. The artists' hope is that their sign, flying by enigmatically ("What was that?"), will add a little bit of awareness to the whole signage landscape in the border zone. Just open up a free space, really. How very American. The empty rectangle frames only a view of sky as you drive by, nothing else.
