Sunset  Bruce and Shannon Andersen, artists. Stainless and cor-ten steel

Sunset, a significant artwork at the Sunset School Park entryway, was created by Seattle artists, Bruce and Shannon Andersen. It was dedicated during a neighborhood celebration on October 4, 2014.

The artists noted that “Sunset is inspired by the by the striking contrast of the brilliant glow from the sun descending behind the bold silhouette of the majestic Olympic Mountains. This continually evolving dynamic between land and sky, interacts with the piece, creating an engaging reference for the viewer.”

Sunset was fabricated by the artists of stainless and cor-ten steel. The properties of cor-ten allow it to oxidize for 2-3 years providing a contrast in color and texture to the arcs of stainless above.
