Model T Kiosk was inspired by a photograph from Melba Eyler and Evelyn Yeager’s 1979 book “The Many Roads to Highline”. The photograph shows Charlie Hughes, an early Burien resident, and his Model T delivery truck loaded with crates of eggs destined for Seattle’s Pike Place Market. Thus, the site-specific artwork recalls the history of Burien as a farming and commerce center.
- This sculpture was inspired by Charlie Hughes and his Model T delivery truck loaded with crates of eggs destined for Seattle’s Pike Place Market many, many years ago. How do you think Burien looked 50 years ago, or 100 years ago?
