This beautiful piece of art was created by Michele Van Slyke in 1993 using concrete, stone, aluminum, steel, cedar and enamel paint. She was born and raised in France and studied at the Sorbonne in Paris and the University of Heidelberg in Germany before finally settling on Bainbridge Island in 1971. This piece celebrates the White River as an important fishing ground for the Lushootseed people, the benches and wind sculpture depict the annual salmon migration, and the nets and weirs used by our region's Native American people.
