Destination Art - "Between Sea and Sky"

UP for Arts is pleased and proud to announce a public dedication of the spectacular Destination Artwork entitled “Between Sea and Sky” in the atrium of the U.P. Civic/Library Building on Saturday, May 30, from 10 to 11:15 a.m. Everyone is invited to attend.

Created by Artist/Architect Michele Gutlove, this stunning glass sculpture is composed of more than 750 individually fused pieces of colored glass depicting the sea, sky, fish, birds and forests of the Pacific Northwest. The sculpture will be suspended from the atrium ceiling, providing visitors with everchanging experiences based upon varying light and weather conditions outside. Led lights strung along the cables will also highlight the sculpture at night.

The 10 a.m. dedication will feature comments from Artist Michele Gutlove followed by a commissioned dance performance by Dance Theatre Northwest entitled “Between Sea and Sky,” choreographed by Artistic Director Melanie Kirk-Stauffeur.

UP for Arts, a nonprofit 501(c)3 volunteer organization, spearheaded a $100,000 fundraising campaign resulting in yet another outstanding piece of public art for our community. We deeply appreciate the generosity of the individuals and businesses that made this project a reality.
