Fundraising begins on ‘Shadow Wave Wall’


The nonprofit Jimi Hendrix Park Foundation has announced a new fundraising effort to support the construction costs of a public art structure, the “Shadow Wave Wall,” at Seattle’s Jimi Hendrix Park. All funds raised during the Jimi Hendrix Park Foundation’s Day of Giving on Tuesday, April 29, will help fund the construction of the “Shadow Wave Wall” in Hendrix’s image.

Evoking imagery of sound-wave patterns, this curved steel art structure will measure in excess of 94 feet in length, with cutout silhouettes of Hendrix performing in concert.

Varying in height between 4 and 12 feet high, the highest section will feature a large portrait of Hendrix, which will be highly visible from the central plaza. 

The “Shadow Wave Wall” will also serve as a gateway feature for those accessing the park from the north, which connects to Sam Smith Park, the I-90 trail and a future Rainier light-rail station.

Groundbreaking in the 2.5-acre park will take place this summer.
