Highland Fling, 2011

Anne Storrs
(American, born 1953)

Location: Shadle Park High School, Spokane

ABOUT THE ARTWORK

Artist Anne Storrs drew inspiration for "Highland Fling" from the ponderosa pine tree, a plant that is both native to and commonly found in Spokane. In these three playful wall sculptures, the pine cones dance the Highland Fling, a Scottish dance that consists of steps performed on one spot in four-four time.

This artwork was acquired for the State Art Collection in partnership with Spokane Public Schools.
