Information from Salty's at Alki
Seattle’s Alki Beach is World famous for its breathtaking Views of downtown Seattle and throughout the year Seattle enthusiasts Rollerblade, play volleyball, walk their dogs, jog, and simply engage in one of the most outgoing waterfront communities in the city. This is why Local artist Lezlie Jane wanted to honor the historic community by placing her work where people could enjoy “The Luna Girls sculpture”which celebrates women in history and the West Seattle we know and love. This is a dream come true for Lezlie who spent 3 Years raising money from the community to create the work of art. The history of Luna Park can be found on HistoryLink.org.
Fabrication of The Luna Girls
The three figures were flame-cut from slab steel. They are cut to look like lines drawn in the air.
When the viewer focuses on the metal lines forming the sculpture, the trio of Girls falls into view. When the viewer is attracted to the scene beyond, their focus simply slips through the lines to enjoy Elliott Bay and downtown Seattle beyond.
Their grace belies the strength and durability of the steel that forms them. The thick cut steel will naturalize to a maintenance-free patina.
The sculpture measures 15 feet by 9 feet by 1.25 inches. It is set on a cobblestone bed.
