ABOUT THE ARTWORK

Known for his photorealistic painting style, artist Michael Fajans created this artwork as part of a series of four detailed views of the boat where these paintings were originally located, the Washington State ferry "Sealth." The works have now been relocated to Clover Park Technical College, where they resonate with the college's vocational curriculum.

This artwork was acquired for the State Art Collection in partnership with Department of Transportation and Clover Park Technical College.
