At Odegaard Library, you can find Bruce Lee ascending

A new art installation on the central staircase of Odegaard Undergraduate Library celebrates actor and martial arts legend Bruce Lee. He studied drama and philosophy at the UW in the early 1960s, and left a legacy of spirit, discipline and breaking barriers and stereotypes.

In 2020, student Han Eckelberg, ’22, designed the piece as a project for his class in advanced photomedia. The piece, rendered in vinyl, was created with support from the OCA-Asian Pacific Advocates of Greater Seattle and in collaboration with the Bruce Lee Foundation. It was dedicated in September with a ceremony that included a performance by the Mak Fai Kung Fu Dragon & Lion Dance Association.
