Parable by Buster Simpson – located on the NE Plaza, Henderson Street

Set in the orchard-like plaza landscaping, the still-life sculpture resembles a bowl of pears and wrecking balls, morphed into one. Parable provides an allegorical reference to the ordered urban landscape and the dynamically changing city.

Dragonfly by Darlene Nguyen-Ely, on display at the Rainier Beach station.

Dragonfly by Darlene Nguyen–Ely – located on the north platform

Nguyen-Ely drew inspiration from the station's architectural elements to create a figure caught in flight. The large, winged sculpture conjures flight imagery, wind, architecture and the artist's own immigrant experiences.

Four bronze columns line the station platform. Their feature reliefs depict height comparisons and measuring systems from around the world. The sculptures invite the public to interact, see how they "measure up" and to consider the use of information to quantify and explain the natural world around us.
