New 12-foot, 1,000-pound public sculpture installed at Village Shops


Patrons at the Village Shops will notice a prominent new piece of public art on Mission Drive this week.

Crews on Friday installed “Synaptic Poise II,” a 1,000-pound cold-cast aluminum sculpture by artist Jacob Burmood on a new concrete pedestal in the pedestrian refuge area between Hen House and Tavern in the Village. Village Shops owner First Washington Realty selected the work among three concepts after a series of public input opportunities earlier this year.
