Made specifically for ArtPrize, Seattle Spring is a composition of six prints pulled directly from utility covers in the city of Seattle. The idea was to bring life to normally overlooked and dull objects by painting them in bright, bold colors.
I started this as the first week of Spring rolled into town and wanted to acknowledge that Seattle is often thought of as dreary and gray, but in reality, it’s one of the most beautiful cities in the country.
Each one of these covers was made in the Seattle area by the Olympic Foundry, the Salmon Bay Foundry, and Washington Iron Works. All 3 of these foundries have a rich history in the region and played an integral part of Seattle’s growth and regrowths over the years.
Even managed to snag an All Day in the Pacific Northwest!
