ABOUT THE ARTWORK

Known for creating radiant artwork from small reflectors, artist Dick Elliott writes, "The quest for the radiant is the driving force behind my art…dots are one of the fundamental expressions of energy, signifying a point of radiance." Hundreds of reflective "dots" comprise three panels at the entrance to Eastlake High School, where students experience the ever-changing nature of light.

This artwork was acquired for the State Art Collection in partnership with Lake Washington School District.

ABOUT THE ARTIST
