Darigold and renowned butter sculptor Linda Christensen have partnered to create a sculpture of what the potential new Seattle sports arena might look like. A 110-pound block of butter was the canvas. Christensen has been in the business for over 40 years. The local dairy company wanted to commemorate the arena proposal getting approved by the Seattle and King County councils last week.
The sculpture is in the shape of a half basketball. Christensen worked on the project at Darigold's South Seattle headquarters. Darigold senior product manager Seth Godwin emphasized the importance of the arena proposal being approved. "Of course, we don’t know what the actual arena will eventually look like or where it might be, and certainly there is still a long way to go to get there, but this is a golden moment for the city, and we at Darigold wanted to commemorate it by putting our imaginations – and our butter – to work,” Godwin said. “The rendering is our interpretation of the perfect arena that will welcome Seattle’s new sports teams, made from perfect butter.”
