Public art to be featured on utility pump house in Maple Leaf – Community comments requested until July 3, 2015.

Seattle Public Utilities (SPU) values your input as we prepare to include a display of public art on the Roosevelt Pump House, located within the Maple Leaf Reservoir Play Area at the corner of NE 82nd Street and Roosevelt Way NE.

SPU is working with local artist Jonathan Fischer and community member Scott K. Bishop to complete a “street-art” style mural that will wrap around the northeast corner of the building and be viewable from two sides. The mural will be created using spray paint with an anti-graffiti coating applied over the top.

The goal of the project is to brighten the building and provide park users with an artistic look and feel to the area. The design concept for the mural will include graffiti inspired and artist interpretations of butterflies, flowers, leaves, vines, trees and patterns, using bright, vibrant colors that complement the adjacent Butterfly Garden.

The community is encouraged to provide SPU with feedback and ideas about the design and ask questions.

SCHEDULE

The building is scheduled to be painted in July 2015, and SPU is accepting feedback from the public through July 3, 2015.

LOCATION

Roosevelt Pump House is located within the Maple Leaf Reservoir Play Area at the corner of NE 82nd Street and Roosevelt Way NE in Seattle, WA.
