Park Art

It’s different, it’s modern, it’s not Sequim…but we own it! I know an article was in the our weekly newspaper, the Sequim Gazette, but for the life of me, I can not remember “why” we own it.

After I originally posted this picture, a friend sent me a link to the article. It was a gift from Dave Reynolds. Here is a portion of the article. “His gift to the city
Reynolds’ grandest piece of art might be an 11-foot-high, 1,000-pound aluminum testament to the ever-changing nature of sunlight and shadow. Reynolds has donated the sculpture, “Sunlight and Shadow,” to the city of Sequim for placement at its water reclamation site on Blake Avenue….“Basically,” Reynolds says, “this sculpture ends up being a metaphor for life. It expresses light and dark, good times and bad … night and day.
“Sunlight and shadow affect everything in our lives. The sun on the water … how we feel when the sun shines ….”
He says it is particularly appropriate for the water reclamation facility because the park represents the cyclical, interdependent nature of the elements: rainwater, groundwater, sunlight and shadows. He’s donating the sculpture to the city because he says the city has given much to him. His gift is an expression of gratitude, a sentiment he is quick to share with Charlie Roberts, the welder and fabricator who brought Reynolds’ 11-inch original to larger than life form.

  1. The detail from the story adds to my appreciation of the art. I suspect from the description that walking around the art at different times of day in different weather conditions would offer numerous different enjoyable experiences.
