Bothell City Hall Installation

On December 6, 2017 we installed four outdoor sculptures at the City Hall in Bothell, Washington. http://www.ci.bothell.wa.us/279/City-Hall . Around a fountain area are the "Mother Beaver with Pup", "Sitting Beaver", and "Standing Otter". Greeting visitors at the top of the main staircase to the Hall sits a one-of-a-kind likeness of “City Kitty”, the nickname of a cat that lived in an old house that was torn down to build the new City Hall.  He hung around throughout the construction period and then for a few years the City employees cared for him as he became the unofficial City Mascot. His ashes are held within the sculpture, which is placed on his favorite perch.

This commission was funded through the 1% for the Arts program. Thanks to the City for this opportunity.
