No doubt if you have visited Fidalgo Island in the past couple months, and traveled down R Avenue toward Seafarer’s Park and Anthony’s restaurant, you have noticed the larger-than-life couple of “Runners,” created by Seattle artist Ken Turner.
A stainless steel sculpture created with flowing metal ribbons, the new installation is located at approximately 17th and R Streets along the Tommy Thompson pedestrian trail, which takes you all the way out to Marches Point (and around and back, if you wish). Seems like the perfect location for art in motion. Funding for this project came from the annual 5K Arts Dash sponsored by the Anacortes Arts Festival and the Parks and Recreation Department.
