Fiery creation: Highland Park artist Kay Kirkpatrick’s achievement

Highland Park Action Committee chair Dan Mullins shares the news of a big achievement for artist Kay Kirkpatrick, an HPAC member and Highland Park Improvement Club board member – her work “Rescue” will be celebrated as the new Seattle Fire Station 35 is dedicated in Crown Hill on September 25th. Dan shares the official announcement here. The photo of Kay’s work is used with permission of our fellow community-collaborative neighborhood-news publishers at My Ballard, from their tour of the new station last month.

    Congratulations Kay!

    It is worth noting for those who aren’t familiar with Kay’s work that she did the art installations for our very own Southwest Precinct on Delridge!

    Don’t get me wrong, it is the nicest fire station I’ve ever seen. But how much did we pay for that bad boy? It’s like the EMP of fire stations.

    Comparing a piece of sculpture on a pole to the EMP is quite the stretch isn’t it.

    I like seeing the art at the new fire stations.

    This station like many around the city was funded through the voter approved 2003 Fire Facilities and Emergency Response Levy Program. Here in West Seattle we are seeing the completion of a new station up on 35th and Holden as well as being the site of the training facility, among other projects. More info is at:
