Abandoned Water Structure (2016). Designed and pieced by Tierney Davis Hogan. Quilted by Betty Anne Guadalupe.

Brief synopsis of the Portable Works program and what will happen to the artwork from the City of Seattle:

The artworks will be exhibitioned throughout the public spaces of Seattle Public Utilities in Seattle. These public spaces include lobbies, entry hallways, reception areas and conference rooms. In order to encourage involvement and understanding of the diversity of artwork in the collection, employees participate in the selection of artwork for their own areas. The artwork moves throughout the offices on a rotation basis, thereby increasing viewing opportunities of the art by employees and the general public. The collection is also occasionally borrowed by museums and galleries for exhibitions.
