Artist Susan Brandeis' elaborate textile construction 'Sunspot' is part of a series exploring the light and texture of the forest floor. It was created by sewing together and assembling screenprinted fabrics and flexible materials. The artist describes this piece as representing "the brilliant play of light on the ground when trees sway on a breezy day, or the shine of wet leaves and pine needles on a dewy morning." This artwork was acquired for the State Art Collection in partnership with Yakima School District and is on display at Roosevelt Elementary School (make appointment to view).
