City of Spokane Division Street Gateway

Thursday, August 1, 2013

Dance of the Redband by local artist Ken Spiering, acts as an unofficial welcome to the City of Spokane. The kinetic steel sculpture celebrates the native and endangered Redband trout. Funded by the City of Spokane and the Public Facilities District, this piece was created as part of a capital project to improve the Division Street Triangle. Intended as a companion piece to arwork commissioned for the Spokane Convention Center in the 1990s, it creates a strong visual connection bvetween two neighborhoods, and reinforces the spirit of connectivity and collaboration that is a hallmark of The University District.
