Limelight  Linda Beaumont, artist. Paint on aluminum

Beaumont's artwork on the prominent north-facing façade, serves as a backdrop for the outdoor, multi-purpose amphitheater and green space. Her work, entitled Limelight, draws on her memories growing up near Shoreline when the native dogwoods (Cornus Nuttallii) were so prolific.

Limelight is a four-story mural painted directly onto the aluminum metal panels of the building façade using special paint that adheres well to this specific surface and has an extremely hard finish, keeping maintenance to a minimum.

The title of the mural was inspired by the light that glows when the pale yellow blossoms open during the spring bloom. While the dogwood mural will create a spring-like atmosphere year-round, the courtyard will become an especially inviting space when the dogwood trees adjacent to the mural are in bloom.
