Visual Dialogue, 1982

Lynda Rockwood
(American, born 1949)

Location: Valley View Middle School, Snohomish

ABOUT THE ARTWORK

In 1982, artist Lynda Rockwood created an outdoor sculptural space for contemplation at Snohomish's Valley View Middle School. The artwork's base is in the form of the original school, prior to the renovation that funded the artwork's creation. Thirty years later, Valley View underwent another major reconstruction, prompting the re-siting of Rockwood's work to a new outdoor commons area, where students can again use it as a space to contemplate the world beyond their immediate physical surroundings.

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