A new fire station is coming to Rosslyn! As part of the project, artists David and Eli Hess were commissioned to develop a site-specific work of public art for the façade of the station. Meet the artists and learn about their work and proposal for the fire station at the Rosslyn Farmers Market (Central Place Plaza, 1800 N. Lynn St.) on Wednesday, September 25, 2019, 3-7 p.m.
Inspired by the history and function of the station, the design consists of a larger-than-life bronze fire hose nozzle with twisting spirals of stainless steel representing a powerful spray of water that will be illuminated at night. The sculpture is designed to be a beacon honoring the fire department and reflecting its long-standing work in the surrounding community while enhancing the public space within The Highlands.
