Alexander Liberman
West of the Space Needle

Alexander Liberman's largest sculpture, Olympic Iliad, is a monumental agglomeration of steel cylinders located on the lawn surrounding the Space Needle. Liberman, known for his use of industrially manufactured materials, used giant steel cylinders cut at varying angles and lengths, painted them an industrial red and assembled them to form an immense structure than one can walk around and underneath. A similar artwork of Liberman's, Iliad, can be found at the Storm King Art Center in Mountainville, New York.

Olympic Iliad was funded through private contributions, Seattle Center 1% for Art and the Seattle Center Foundation.
