Steven Gardner's The Call dedicated at Fire Station 6 open house, March 16
 
Celebrate the dedication of the Central District's new Fire Station 6 and the artwork The Call by Steve Gardner at an open house. Steve Gardner will be present to talk about his artwork.


What: Meet the artist Steve Gardner, tour the new fire station, and meet the local fire fighters. The Call is a mural of aluminum and cast glass on the façade of the fire station. The artwork is inspired by the energy of the firefighters' response to an emergency. Images of water and fire surge out of the mural alongside bolts of lightning—an early icon of the original Fire Station 6. The bolts are a symbol of the strength, speed and power that characterize the firefighters' service to the community.

When: 11 a.m. to 1 p.m., Saturday, March 16.

Where: Fire Station 6, 405 Martin Luther King Jr. Way S. On-street parking is limited. The site is accessible by Metro buses.

Info: Kelly Pajek, public art project manager, (206) 684-7311.


The project was commissioned with the Department of Finance and Administrative Services Fire Facilities and Emergency Response Levy 1% for Art Funds and administered by the Seattle Office of Arts & Cultural Affairs.
