The NSC Art Task Force works to beautify the North Seattle College campus through displays of student and faculty art. A new permanent sculpture has been installed on campus, mounted on the exterior of the Education Building. Student Enkhgerel (Eni) Byambadorj, who is graduating with an Associate of Fine Arts degree this spring, created this piece.
Artist Statement: The sculpture is the abstract form of a Mongolian traditional ornament. “Ulzii Khee” (translated as "Luck Ornament") implies a long and fortunate life. The idea is to bring luck to North Seattle College. In Mongolia, people use this ornament as a decorative symbol, and most of the Mongolian ornamental shapes are made from animal horn.
Eni proposed that the sculpture be installed permanently and gained permission for that to happen from the Executive Team. The North Art Department congratulates her and thanks her for this contribution to campus.
Eni is also the layout editor for North’s student literary-art magazine, Licton Springs Review 2015.
