Deadline Near for Wawona RFQ

The Museum of History & Industry in Seattle has published a request for qualifications for qualified consultants to provide a range of conceptual designs for the land-based interpretation of the historic 1897 schooner Wawona, one of the largest three-masted schooners ever built on the West Coast and one of only two remaining Pacific schooners out of a fleet of over 500 sailing ships that once engaged in coastwise and transoceanic shipping and in fisheries.

In 2007, the request says, Wawona will be moved from her long-term berth at South Lake Union Park, and MOHAI seeks concepts for her on-land interpretation at the park. Options include on-land display of the entire vessel, and on-land display of significant components of the vessel. The deadline to respond is Friday, December 8, 2006. For further information, contact MOHAI Executive Director Leonard Garfield via email at
