The rotating artwork in the Heart of Phinney Park on the corner of North 67th Street and Phinney Avenue North now features “Samaras” by Matt Babcock.

A samara is a seed with a wing, such as a maple seed.
My goal as a sculptor is to create complex impressions using simple parts. I often use forms derived from the structure and movement of animals and plants. In April 2012 the Phinney Neighborhood Center Gallery will show some of my animal mobiles.
The powder-coated steel sculpture is 41 inches high, 41 inches wide and four inches deep. It is for sale for $6,800. If interested, contact the Phinney Neighborhood Center at 206-783-2244.
