The Office of Arts & Culture is excited to announce that Seattle artist W. Scott Trimble has been commissioned for a project at the Seattle City Light North Service Center. He will work with Seattle City Light and the local community to create two or more artworks at the facility, located at 1300 North 97th Street in the Licton Springs neighborhood. For this commission Trimble will consider opportunities that reflect the business of City Light, the history of Licton Springs (including the natural springs and their historic use by local indigenous peoples), and the community’s environmental values.
From an early age W. Scott Trimble has drawn, designed and created with whatever resources were at hand. He has a special interest in working with materials and processes to create artwork that is accessible, interactive and presents a narrative. Trimble has a Bachelor of Fine Arts in Spatial Arts from San Jose State University and a Master of Fine Arts in Sculpture from the University of Washington, and has exhibited at a number of spaces including Bellevue Arts Museum, Greg Kucera Gallery, Schneider Museum, 4Culture Gallery and Soil Gallery. He has also received several GAP grants through Artist Trust, an Individual Projects Grant from 4Culture, and has participated in artist residencies at the Anderson Ranch Arts Center in Snowmass Village, Colorado; Jentel in Banner, Wyoming; Lucas Arts Residency in Montalvo, California; and Bemis Center in Omaha, Nebraska.
Trimble is expected to develop the artwork in conjunction with the Annex building construction completion, tentatively set for fall 2015.
