Nytec Inc. announced last week the opening of its curated sculpture garden in Kirkland.
The “Garden of You” Sculpture Garden was created “to provide an inspiring haven for employees and an environment which encourages creative thinking, collaboration, and well-being,” according to a press release.
Nytec Inc. is a full-service design and engineering consulting firm.
The exhibit is curated by Ryan James Fine Arts. The first show in the garden includes works by Kirkland artists Don Anderson, Lee Campbell, Stephen Edwards, Dan Freeman, Craig Howard, and Dean Kentala. Some pieces are available for purchase.
The “Garden of You” Sculpture Garden is located on private property but can be visited by appointment. To schedule an appointment, contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
“Nytec’s sculpture garden, ‘The Garden of You’ is a dedication to, and celebration of, all Nytec employees, past, present and future,” said Rich Lerz, CEO of Nytec Inc., in a press release. “It is an uplifting place for a break, a private phone call, or a small meeting, and it offers our employees the kind of stimulation that nourishes creative minds. Being surrounded by sculpture and nature is the perfect counterpoint to being immersed in cutting-edge design and engineering.”
Lerz said that the art on Nytec’s campus often sparks conversation and “fosters a new level of interest and curiosity throughout the work space.”
“Since 2014, Nytec team members have helped curate a revolving collection of artwork in their office environment,” according to the release. “From common areas, such as break rooms and corridors, to more private spaces including offices and conference rooms, Nytec’s goal is to infuse the daily work space with beautiful and thought provoking works in keeping with our core values and aesthetics.”
