Phillip Levine’s 1979 bronze sculpture installed outside the Burien Courthouse is timeless. The artist envisioned this work as one that would remain relevant and welcoming through changes in the life of the community. Drawing upon myth, memory, and image, Levine’s art gives unique spatial consideration to human relationships and activity.
Levine said about the artwork, “A court is not always the most friendly place, I wanted to create something warm.”
