More Art in Licton Springs

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.

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.
