Art at the High Point Branch

High Point Branch Art Gallery

Seattle ceramic artist Steve Gardner designed the art for the High Point Branch. With input from librarians and the community, Gardner designed terra cotta panels based on stories or legends from around the world about the sky and stars.

See About the Art for information about the legends behind the artwork.
