Travel time: Wilburton Station to Mercer Island - 13 minutes
- PROJECT: Plaza Sculpture
- ARTIST: Phillip K. Smith III (Palm Springs, CA)
- DESCRIPTION: Smith’s artwork responds to the color of the sky and the changing light over the course of days. An extruded X-shaped column of mirrored surfaces will reflect the sky and station surroundings during the day. As the light changes, internal lights will transform the sculpture into a lit column, changing and combining colors and serving as an iconic beacon identifying the station.
