Did You Know?

The focal point of the Mercer Island Community & Event Center lobby is a stunning art embellished staircase railing. The staircase decoration consists of bronze panels depicting a relief of plants and fauna by eastern Washington sculptor Wayne Chabre. Titled The Island, the railing incorporates elements of native plant life and lush forests, and fruit imagery from historical orchards found on the center site. Along with a few hidden surprises in the form of small animals that are not immediately noticeable to the eye, but will intrigue young and old alike when discovered upon closer viewing, adding a touch of whimsy.
