ELI'S PARK PROJECT

I have been commissioned with artist Kate Clark to conceptualize, fabricate, and install a permanent gateway sculpture at Eli's Park in Seattle, Washington.

 

Eli’s Park is a soon-to-be renovated public park that carries on the memory and light of Eli, a little boy who showed us the importance of ACCESSIBILITY and INCLUSIVITY for everyone. Eli’s Park will have a accessible play equipment and spaces for all abilities and ages to enjoy. 

Our sculpture (to be done in 2024) is based on the Pileated Woodpecker, which we believe creates affordable housing and community. Pecking holes into trees, the woodpecker excavates cavities that house a diverse community of squirrels, owls, birds, and insects! 

Standing at the entrance to Eli's Park, our steel trees with animal sculptures remind us of the woodpecker community builders among us.

Materials: corten steel tubes, stainless steel animal sculptures
