Flying Fish - Judith and Daniel Caldwell

Where is it?

Concourse B

This artwork runs the entire length of Concourse B.

About the Art

Judith and Daniel Caldwell completed the installation on Concourse B in 1999. It consists of bronze fish and leaves indigenous to the Northwest embedded in the terrazzo and meandering down the length of Concourse B. The fish carrying the suitcase is just one example of the many surprises you'll find as you journey down the stream. It all adds to the whimsical nature of the work which has produced many positive comments from the public; but the best part is watching children respond in such delight as they interact with the artwork and discover those unexpected elements found in the cast artwork.
