Fish Bridge

La Connor, WA


This footbridge was made for the Seattle Art Commission's Salmon in the City Project. The bridge traveled to several sites in Seattle over the summer of 2001, including the University of Washington campus and parks around town.

You walk into the mouth of one salmon and out the mouth of the other. There are a variety of stories about the salmon, factual and fanciful, engraved into the wooden decking. The underlying bridge is aluminum. The fish are skeletal wire-framed diagrams made of stainless steel bar.

The fish bridge is currently part of the waterfront of La Conner, Washington

Commissioned by the Seattle Art Commission.

Owned by the City of La Conner.
