Artwork to be dedicated at Seattle Streetcar stop, July 22

Celebrate the dedication of Nickolus Meisel’s cloud haiku at the Westlake Avenue and Seventh Avenue stop of the Seattle Streetcar. Come see the artwork and meet the artist, 3 to 4 p.m., Friday, July 22, on the west side of the street at the southbound streetcar stop.

Meisel’s cloud haiku is a series of four sculptural groupings of cast-bronze pillows arranged along the Seattle Streetcar stop. Meisel’s artwork was inspired by his desire to create an urban Zen garden, a space for pause in the urban traveler’s busy day. “This work harkens to the timeless American love affairs with wandering. It marries travel and site, possibility, waiting, wondering, wandering and resting,” says Meisel.

The artwork cloud haiku is commissioned with Seattle Department of Transportation 1% for Art funds administered by the Office of Arts & Cultural Affairs.
