New Public Art Unveiling August 10th In Gig Harbor

The Landing at the Maritime Pier

Gig Harbor, Wash. July 25th, 2016 – The Gig Harbor Arts Commission is pleased to announce the dedication of a new public art piece in Gig Harbor. “The Landing” is located at the Maritime Pier at 3303 Harborview Drive. The dedication ceremony will occur on Wednesday, August 10th at noon.

The artist, Matthew Dockrey has honored Gig Harbor's rich maritime history. The name and form refer to the first landing of the captain's gig from the 1841 Wilkes Expedition. It also recalls the time when rowboats were a main form of transportation and pays tribute to our town's long tradition of commercial fishing.
