Council Member Sally Bagshaw and Crosscut founder David Brewster will be grilling Ron Sevart, CEO of the Space Needle, and Seattle Center director Robert Nellams about the proposed Chihuly museum slated for two acres of public land at Seattle Center. The four will be featured Seattle Channel's City Inside/Out program for a half-hour segment that will air tomorrow night at 7:00 p.m.

If you have plans for Friday night, cancel them. Dump your girlfriend. Stay home. Make some popcorn. This is bound to be exciting.

Bagshaw, chair of the council's Parks & Seattle Center Committee, has long held reservations about the museum, and pushed to open the Fun Forest site up for public bids (which will begin in mid-April). Brewster, who started a group called Friends of the Green (FROG) in 2006 to advocate for a more parklike Seattle Center, spoke against the Chihuly project a few weeks ago at a public meeting dominated by Seattle Center and Space Needle interests. Meanwhile, Sevart and Nellams have worked closely together over the past year to make the Chihuly museum at Seattle Center a reality.

This is Bagshaw's chance to take her balls out of storage, polish them up, and put them to good use. We'll see if that happens. Once again, City Inside/Out will air tomorrow night at 7:00 p.m., and is also available via Comcast on demand, and on your computer.
