The Senior Lounge Annex will serve the needs of the community by creating a space of comfort and belonging. Seniors and community members will also feel inspired as they meet, sip coffee together, and wait for larger events to begin.

The selected artist will be asked to create a piece for the North Wall Senior Lounge Annex. The wall is 20’ x 16’.

In honor of RS&CC’s past, “Fantail Bird” by artist Dudley Carter will be reinstalled on the South Annex Wall. The Artist Selection Panel is looking for the selected artist to create a contemporary counterpart/counterpoint to the Dudley Carter piece that is beloved by the Redmond community. This should be a work that speaks and relates to “Fantail Bird” but stands on its own as a unique, beautiful, and welcoming piece of art.
