Meadowbrook PondArtists Lydia Aldredge and Kate Wade collaborated with Peggy Gaynor to transform this key Seattle Public Utilities facility into a tranquil environment designed to educate visitors while providing a retreat from the surrounding city.
Cedar River WatershedDan Corson worked with the design team of Jones and Jones Architects to integrate art into the Cedar River Watershed Education Center. Corson's artworks reflect the Cedar River Watershed's natural environment and also make use of water, of which Seattle Public Utilities (SPU) is a primary steward.
The destination interpretive facility educates visitors on the function, ecology and importance of the Cedar River Watershed, which is managed by SPU and is the principal source of drinking water for the Seattle metropolitan area
Hatch CoversBelow Seattle's streets lies an extensive infrastructure of conveyance pipes designed to keep the city running smoothly. Typically, these entryways were covered with serviceable but battered hatch covers which kept pedestrians and vehicles safely above ground.
In the early 1970's, when the time came to replace older covers, rather than simply exchanging them with nondescript replacements, the City of Seattle commissioned three artists to design creative works of art inspired by the beautiful hatch covers found in Florence, Italy. The work proved to be so popular among area residents that the program was revived in 2000.
