Followup: Luna Girls now in permanent home on West Seattle shore

February 24, 2014 at 11:02 am | In West Seattle beaches, West Seattle news, WS culture/arts | 9 Comments

A little over two weeks after we reported installation under way on the east end of Seacrest Park, just west of Salty’s on Alki (WSB sponsor), the Luna Girls sculpture is installed and out from under its protective tarp. That’s artist Lezlie Jane with her privately funded 15-foot-long, nine-foot-wide creation, which she describes as “flame-cut from slab steel”; thanks to Mark Jaroslaw for sending the first photo. Jane’s website for the sculpture includes and explains their names – from left, Emily, Gunvor Katja, and Lorna.

P.S. There’s more, including video from the installation, on the Southwest Seattle Historical Society website.

  8. I am all for art, public art especially, but am I the only person that thinks this is the ugliest public art installation she’s ever seen?

  9. Can’t we have some gorgeous guys in tight-fitting garments instead of it always being females?
