Members of the public are invited to join Kirkland City Council members, the Kirkland Cultural Arts Commission and artist Merrily Dicks for the installation celebration of the first public art installed on Cross Kirkland Corridor (CKC).
“The Spikes” was created by Dicks with railroad spikes collected by the Kirkland community after the rails were removed from the CKC.
The celebration will take place at 5 p.m. Friday (May 12) on the CKC at the 85th Street underpass, where “The Spikes” is installed. It can be accessed from the Seventh Avenue/NE 87th Street CKC entrance.
After the celebration, attendees are encouraged to stop by downtown Kirkland for the Second Friday Downtown Kirkland Artwalk and return over the weekend for the Kirkland Artist Studio Tour (KAST).
