This book celebrates noted Seattle sculptor Phillip Levine?s fifty-year anniversary as the creator of works inspired by the worlds of dance, song, sport, and social commentary. It includes a valuable autobiographical essay by the sculptor. Contributions by fellow sculptor Tom Jay and Norman Lundin, painter and professor of art at the University of Washington, offer an intimate perspective on the artist?s enduring creative endeavor and accomplishment.

Levine has lived, taught, and maintained a studio in Seattle since he arrived in the city in 1959. His sculpture Dancer With Flat Hat has greeted generations of students at the University of Washington. All those who have found beauty and delight in Levine?s vision will enjoy the comprehensive portfolio of illustrations at the heart of the book, which covers the full span of his career. This fresh look into the artist?s life work reveals his deep interest in the figure in movement, and the unexpected way the use of bronze, with its density and strength, opened the door to an artistic world of timeless lightness and grace.

Editorial Reviews

If you're one of the hundreds of people who cross the pedestrian bridge over 15th Avenue East in Seattle's University District each day, you'll recognize her instantly: 'Dancer with Flat Hat.' She's just one of the dancers, singers and other figures highlighted in this handsomely packaged retrospective of the Seattle sculptor's long career.
