FUNDING SOURCE
Seattle Center 1% for Art funds


On the prominent north wall of the Fisher Pavilion, Mersky created Twine and Branch, a set of 42 faux wood panels that span the length of the exhibition hall. Mersky sandblasted the panels with a repeating branch and twine motif symbolically referring to the interdependent relationship of humanity and nature. Visible from the outside through the Pavilion's wide glass front wall, the piece adds interest to both the interior meeting space and the exterior entry plaza.
