You may already be familar with the Light Bulb Bench and Big Tesla located around the Seattle City Light North Service Center building but earlier this month, two new art works were dedicated by Seattle City Light and the City of Seattle Arts & Culture.
Last week, City Light, in partnership with @SeattleArts, unveiled two new pieces of public art at its North Service Center. Learn more about the artwork and how City Light Shops helped make it a reality on our Powerlines blog! https://t.co/KDuBvClXN9 #PublicPower pic.twitter.com/QaVEhmu5vc— Seattle City Light (@SEACityLight) November 18, 2019
The two pieces “Undulating Currents” and “Licton Flow”, located on N 97th St, were created by renowned artist W. Scott Trimble and commissioned with the City Light 1% for Art funds administered by the Seattle Office of Arts & Culture.
Be sure to take a stroll through the Seattle City Light North Service Center building to see additional artwork inside.
