Art unveiling at Marysville Pilchuck HS

A piece of art will be installed and unveiled Friday at Marysville Pilchuck High School.

The work, titled “HopeGate,” was commissioned as a result of the construction of the Commons building. It took artist Roger Feldman about two years to complete.

“Researching local tribes of Salish Seas people, it made sense to honor the context of this piece by connecting it to a 12,000-year history of indigenous people who have inhabited these lands,” Feldman said in a news release.

The ceremony is scheduled for 1:30 p.m. Friday at the high school’s auditorium.
