A Walk Through MSRE’s Art Collection
With a rich history of artists and art institutions like the Seattle Art Museum and Dale Chihouli, art is something that Seattle holds near and dear to its heart. You can explore the vast culture by visiting art galleries and museums scattered through the city, or you can spot some breathtaking art pieces by simply walking past any Martin Selig Real Estate property. As an avid artist and advocate of the art community, Martin Selig has blended art and architecture with thoughtfully placed sculptures and paintings at each MSRE property.
While walking through Belltown, you’ll see “He” and “She”, a pair of bronze sculptures by Howard Garnitz. These sculptures are sitting at Fourth and Blanchard along with “The Red Popsicle” by Catherine Mayer.
As you explore Seattle you’ll make your way to Elliott Park and experience the modernist style of well-known British Artist, Dame Barbara Hepworth with her “Three Obliques” sculpture as you pass by 635 Elliott West. Other art pieces you’ll see at 635 Elliott West are “Eleven Straight Lines” by Bernar Venet, “The Source’ by Sorel Etrong, and “Fusion” by Gedalia Ben-Zvi. The mobile art installation, “L’s One Up One Down Excentric” by George Rickey is displayed at Elliot Bay Office Park and Emilio Creco’s piece, “Estrellita” welcomes you as you pass by 3101 Western.
Walking through the Financial District will lead you to “Adam” by Fernando Botero and “What Goes Out…Always Comes Back” by Catherine Mayer outside our Federal Reserve Building. When you come upon the International District, you’ll find John Henry’s “Songbird” sculpture displayed at our Fifth and Yesler property.
As you explore Seattle and experience the MSRE art collection, take in the architecture of the building it sits outside of. Each unique sculpture was placed outside of a particular MSRE property for a purpose. Pay attention to how each piece makes you feel as you experience it.
Take a peek at all of the sculptures and plan your art tour through Seattle with the above MSRE properties in mind. At MSRE we want to enrich the experience for all who visit, do business, work, and live near our properties.
