The Seattle Art Museum has some new bling on the NW corner, 1st and Union! After a year in the making, Western Neon is proud to announce the role it has in this newly unveiled MIRROR project by artist Doug Aitken. Western Neon has provided the new stainless steel SAM lettering, with mirror finishes to reflect the steady stream of Northwest photography and video shot by the artist that captures the essence of our everyday life here in the Emerald City and surrounding landscapes. The SAM lettering is 8′ tall, constructed of faceted steel panels to catch a variety of light and reflections from different angles, and is edge illuminated with hundreds feet of white LED lighting. We encourage you visit this permanent exterior artwork, especially around dusk and into the evening, to see what a fantastic edition this is to the neighbor and the City of Seattle!
