Landed Bridge Series, 1979

Thomas Lindsey
(American, born 1941, died 2017)

Location: Spokane Community College, Spokane


Landed Bridge Series is a large-scale sculpture created by artist Thomas Lindsey for Spokane Community College. He composed the sculpture in three pieces, arranged in a group. The strong geometric forms and parallel planes play with our perceptions. At some angles, the group appears connected. At other angles, you can see that the elements are distinctly separate.

This artwork was acquired for the State Art Collection in partnership with Spokane Community College.


Northwest artist Thomas Lindsey (1941-2017) was a sculptor, architect, and musician. His work is heavily influenced by childhood memories of the huge steel mills and the many bridges around Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania where he grew up. He lived and worked on Guemes Island in North Puget Sound for over forty years.

Lindsey studied architecture at the University of Kentucky and the University of Oklahoma, before receiving a Bachelor of Fine Arts degree from the Kansas City Art Institute in 1967. He worked a variety of jobs including in construction and as a welder, teacher, and architectural draftsman.
