Key Grove, 1990

Clark Wiegman
(American, born 1960)

Location: Franklin High School, Seattle

ABOUT THE ARTWORK

Using Benjamin Franklin—the high school's namesake—as a starting point, artist Clark Wiegman began a process he calls "collaborative place-making." The resulting artwork defines the school's entrance plaza with a grove of larger-than-life 18th century keys that could have been used by Franklin during his experiments with electricity.

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