The public is invited to join the City of Redmond in celebrating the newest public artwork, “SIGNALS,” by John Fleming. A sunset ribbon-cutting reception will be held from 7:30-8:30 p.m. on March 27 on the Redmond Central Connector near 161st Avenue Northeast and Bear Creek Parkway.

Guest speakers will include Fleming, Redmond Mayor John Marchione and Parks and Recreation Director Craig Larsen. Guests are encouraged to arrive at 7:30 p.m. to enjoy the artwork with music and refreshments; the event will begin at 7:45 p.m.

Fleming is a gifted artist with decades of experience. His work is a combination of art, architecture and conceptual/environmental projects. Many of Fleming’s projects are inspired by mixed and recycled media.

“SIGNALS” is a substantial gateway sculpture with a colored LED lighting feature that was installed throughout January and February of this year. It is located at the Brown Street Plaza, within the Redmond Central Connector near 161st Avenue Northeast and Bear Creek Parkway. “SIGNALS” reuses parts from de-commissioned train signals that used to regulate traffic along the BNSF railroad intersections in Redmond. This piece brings together pedestrians and bicyclists instead of trains and cars. It also serves as an informal gathering place and performance venue for the City of Redmond.
