Public art dedication and celebration to be held at Wallingford Branch

A ceremony and celebration to dedicate new neon artwork for the Wallingford Branch of The Seattle Public Library will be held Saturday, July 10, 2004.

The ceremony will take place from 10 a.m. to 10:30 a.m. at the branch, which is located inside the Fremont Public Association Resource Center, 1501 N. 45th St. Refreshments will be served until 1p.m.

The public will get to see the five colorful neon signs that symbolize activities that take place inside a library. The signs were installed June 22, but will remain turned off until the dedication. The signs are:


  • A blue world from the logo of The Seattle Public Library;
  • A red mystic eye to represent mystery;
  • A white "at" symbol to represent computer access;
  • A green puzzle piece to symbolize family gathering and accumulation of knowledge;
  • A yellow atom symbol to represent human knowledge.


City Librarian Deborah L. Jacobs and Ellensburg artist Richard Elliott will speak at the ceremony. Jacobs will dedicate the art; Elliott will talk about the signs and how he developed the concepts.

For more information, call Joan Johnson, branch manager, at (206) 684-4088.

Artwork for the branch was provided by the city's "One Percent for Art" program.
