Man Hammerring


As a part of the City of Seattle’s public art program, The Seattle Arts Commission installed the 48 feet tall Hammering Man on September 12, 1992 at the entrance to the downtown Seattle Art Museum at First Avenue and University Streets.

The Hammering Man‘s arm “hammers” silently and smoothly four times per minute from 7 am to 10 pm every day. It runs on a 3-hp electric motor set on an automatic timer. Hammering Man rests its arm each evening and every year on Labor Day.
