A new art sculpture was installed on September 13 at the southwest corner of NE 175th Street and 133rd Avenue NE in downtown Woodinville. The sculpture is a
donation from the late Malka Fricks, a former city parks & recreation commissioner. The sculpture was designed and built by artist Shelley S. Curtiss. The new sculpture is a friendly 2-foot tall bronze basset hound mom and pup that welcomes motorists and pedestrians as they pass the corner of 133rd Avenue NE. The City has extended the sidewalk to make a fitting place for the sculpture and will provide lighting and landscaping after some needed electrical work has been completed.The City Council will hold a brief installation ceremony to recognize Ms. Fricks’ contribution at a date and time to be determined in the near future. For more information regarding the new sculpture, contact City Hall at (425) 489-2700.
