“Dan, Dan, The Aluminum Man”

There’s people walking up the walls of Pike Place Market! Artist¬†Dan Webb received this public arts commission via the Pike Place Market Preservation and Development Authority. This installation was part of a remodeling project for the market’s back steps entrance. Seven male and female aluminum figures serve as functioning light fixtures. They appear to be coming out of a small aluminum door and walking around walls and ¬†the ceiling. The light globes the figures carry are based on a larger light globe that used to be by the market’s entrance. Two Ravens Studio helped Dan take his concept from clay originals to the finished design and fabrication of the doorway.
