Art at the Wallingford Branch

Wallingford Branch Art Gallery

The Seattle Public Library board of trustees selected Ellensburg artist Richard Elliott to design artwork for the Wallingford Branch.


Elliot designed and fabricated five colorful neon signs that symbolize activities that take place inside a library. The signs are:


  • A blue world from the logo of The Seattle Public Library;
  • A red mystic eye to represent mystery;
  • A white "at" symbol to represent computer access;
  • A green puzzle piece to symbolize family gathering and accumulation of knowledge;
  • A yellow atom symbol to represent human knowledge.
