The Kirkland Performance Center is hosting a preview for four art concepts that were developed using salvaged pieces of the Kalakala, a historic passenger vessel.

The Kalakala Art Reveal and Open House will let attendees meet the artists on Jan. 31 from 5 to 7:30 p.m. at the Kirkland Performance Center.

In 2015, the City of Kirkland purchased historic pieces of the Kalakala, the world’s first streamlined passenger vessel that was built in 1935 at the Lake Washington Ship Yard in Kirkland’s Carillon Point.

A citizen committee with members of the Cultural Arts Commission was formed to explore how to repurpose the salved pieces for an art installation that commemorates the historic ferry.
