[ARCHIVED] Dedication Ceremony for Bobbi Burkett Memorial Sculpture at Sequim Civic Center

SEQUIM—The City Arts Advisory Commission will hold a dedication ceremony on Friday, February 5, 2016 at 5:00 p.m. to commemorate the installation of a glass art sculpture, in memory of Bobbi Burkett, at the Sequim Civic Center, located at 152 W. Cedar Street. The event is part of the First Friday Art Walk.

The sculpture was donated by Steve Burkett, who retired as Sequim City Manager on June 30, 2015, as a memorial to his late wife Bobbi. The piece of art consists of 10 colorful glass plates mounted on a metal armature. The sculpture will be permanently installed in the southeast corner of the Civic Center lobby.

Approximately $11,000 was raised by the community through a fund created by the Olympic View Community Foundation for the sculpture. The piece was designed and constructed by Bob Rigg of Seattle Glassblowing Studio.
