Dear Patrons and Supporters
Thank you to each of you who, over the past 13 years, have assisted in creating one of Seattle’s newest and most artistic city attractions—Jimi Hendrix Park. Our evolution has continued to materialize this year with the recent unveiling of the new Shadow Wave Wall that helped to commemmorate Jimi Hendrix's birthday on November 27th. We invite everyone to come out and experience this new public art installation.
Because we believe you share our passion for the project and have an interest in and a love for Jimi Hendrix and his legacy, we did not want to move toward completion without inviting to you to be a part of this amazing culmination of hard work and dedication.
We’re experiencing exciting times at The Jimi Hendrix Park, as we near the ultimate fulfillment of our dreams. You may recall, in 2016 we unveiled the results of the first phase of construction, including all the main green spaces and pathways within the 2.5-acre park. In 2017, additional pathways, curbs and landscaping, plus the artistic structure for our central canopy, marked the completion of phase two. This central gathering place and performance umbrella served as our stage during The Jimi Hendrix Park’s festive grand opening celebrations.
While our dream has materialized in stages, we have yet more to realize. And we are hoping that you will be a part of these exciting steps towards completion and ongoing maintenance within the Park grounds.
Today, we’re asking for your help in funding the construction of our third and final phase in the park redevelopment, with the creation of The Shadow Wave Wall.
Now completed, this elegant, artistic installation comprises more than 105 feet of magnificent metal designs that capture the essence and free flowing style of Jimi Hendrix’s music, with an apex standing nearly 11-feet, and an engraved portrait of Jimi at the center. Because of the enormity of this crowning feature, we are presented with a need for help keep funding the installation and ongoing maintenance of all Park features.
Thanks to the generosity of patrons, we have successfully raised more than $347,000. However, we remain $220,000 away from our goal. With your help, we can reach that goal and complete this incredible labor of love! As a federally registered 501(c)(3) non-profit organization, 100% of your tax-deductible gift will go towards finalizing development of The Jimi Hendrix Park. Our success will be your success! Please, let’s work together to fulfill this vision.
