A Special Dedication to kick-off during the February First Friday Art Walk at Sequim’s Civic Center

On Friday, February 5, 2016, at 5 p.m., former City Manager Steve Burkett and friends will unveil an art glass sculpture, which is being permanently installed in the lobby of the new Sequim Civic Center at 152 W Cedar St. Commissioned by Burkett, this exciting piece of public art is being donated to the City and will be dedicated in memory of his late wife, Bobbi, who passed away in 2013.

The creation of this beautiful art work was made possible through the generosity of Burkett family members and friends, who donated nearly $12,000 to the Olympic View Community Foundation in Sequim on behalf of the Bobbi Burkett Memorial Fund over the course of two years.

Seattle Glassblowing Studio in Seattle created this standing art glass sculpture which embodies the colors and light found in the natural beauty surrounding Sequim and the Olympic Peninsula, which Bobbi dearly loved. A collaborative design, this installation was created by Bob Rigg, Cyrena Stefano, and Cliff Goodman, a talented team of artists at Seattle Glassblowing Studio.
