About the Artwork

Artist Elizabeth Conner and her design team created a series of integrated artworks for the West Police Precinct concentrating on themes of the building's public safety function. Several of the works incorporate the idea of commemoration using real objects and images to acknowledge the dedication and commitment of Seattle police officers and the important contributions of their civilian support staff. The concepts of light and time speak to the facility's focus on safety and vigilance and serve as inspiration for many of the details included in the pieces.

The works integrated into the facility include: Plaza Seat Cubes, 24-Hour Street Grid, Lockers, and the 911 History Wall.

Funding

Funded by Executive Services Department % for Art funds, administered by the Seattle Arts Commission.
