“Holding Hope” was an art installation on display in several locations throughout downtown Seattle. Each aluminum six-foot sculpture featured two hands holding one another in the shape of a heart, presented in a variety of eye-catching colors designed to bring a pop of vibrancy to downtown. “Holding Hope” was meant to inspire unity and community as we moved forward following the onset of the COVID-19 pandemic. “Holding Hope” statues were on site at Westlake Park, Occidental Square, McGraw Square, Freeway Park and Pike Place Market.
From December 2020 through February 2021, “Holding Hope” was also an opportunity to promote community. For every photo taken at one of these installations and posted with the hashtag #HoldingHopeSeattle, a donation was made to the Pike Place Market Foundation.
