“Sunlight Over First Hill” Selected as Design for Interstate 5 Columns

The First Hill Improvement Association is proud to announce that “Sunrise Over First Hill”  is the winning concept for the Interstate 5 Columns project.

Designed by local artist and Seattle University student Nathan Watkins, this concept represents First Hill’s neighbors, architectural history, topography, density, and lush tree canopy. Nathan says, “this design could represent no other area, and in being as such it is a powerful expression of the identity, character, and presence of First Hill.”

We thank the thousands of people who voted in the selection process, and a grateful to each of the artists who submitted thoughtful proposals for consideration.After final permitting and review, this project will be installed during the late spring/early summer by our partners at Urban Artworks. Many volunteer opportunities are coming, so stay tuned!

This project is generously supported by Only In Seattle
