The Troll Under the Bridge

The Fremont Troll was designed and built by Steve Badanes, Will Martin, Donna Walter and Ross Witehead with the help from the community. The Fremont Arts Council sponsored the project, which hoped to build a greater sense of place in the neighborhood through art, and with it a stronger community. The Troll was selected in an open competition in which the community voted on proposals designed by four finalists. Many volunteers helped prepare the site and create the ferro-cement sculpture. Support came from time, money and in-kind donations by the community, and a grant from the Seattle Neighborhood Matching Funds Program. Maintenance is provided by the Fremont Arts Council and you. Please leave the site cleaner than you found it.
