Betty Bowen Award-winning sculptor Jenny Heishman now has a third public art installation in Seattle, her second in the busy South Lake Union neighborhood. “Woodpile,” at Boren Avenue and Thomas Street, is “a playful response to the steep slope of Boren Avenue” — as well as the area’s former sawmills — with its stash of steel cylinders (logs) piled against a makeshift prop. The bronze fabric, painted bright blue, represents the tarp found in many a Northwest yard. (A viewer wondered if someone had left a jacket there; nope. It’s metal.)

(“Woodpile” was commissioned by Vulcan Real Estate and is now owned by Amazon.com. It was built by Fabrication Specialties Ltd. of Seattle.)
