Percival Plinth Project

Plinth at Percival Landing

What is a Plinth?

In architecture, a plinth is the base or platform upon which a column, pedestal, statue, monument or structure rests.

On Percival Landing, plinths are the sculpture stands which form the basis of an art and performance promenade along Olympia's waterfront.

People's Prize Competition

Every year, the plinths at Percival Landing host a new selection of loaned sculpture by local and regional artists. A community vote is held and the sculpture that receives the most votes is purchased for permanent display at another location within the City.

Sculpture not awarded the People's Prize is available for purchase at the completion of its exhibition. Please contact the artist directly for purchase inquiries.

How to Vote

To be eligible to vote you must pick up an official ballot at Percival Landing and personally visit each of the displayed sculptures. Ballots may then be submitted at The Olympia Center, the weekend drop-box, or by mail.
