Metropolis, a new art installation at Edmonds Community College (ECC) in Lynnwood, WA, has some surprising ties to the Simpson Center.

Strong ties.

The sculpture, created by Seattle artist Evan Blackwell, has been designed specifically for the corrugated exterior of Meadowdale Hall, a building housing ECC’s visual arts, engineering, construction management and energy management programs. It is an assemblage of stainless steel hardware pieces and salvaged fasteners that have been arranged in a pattern inspired by circuit boards.
