Goodbye, Seattle–I love your art!

This mural is on the side of the Southwest Seattle Senior Center on South Holly.
At Cheap Chickadee Thrift Store
a tile in someone’s front yard


Seattle was lots of fun!

Besides beautiful walks, an amazing central library, an improv show, some great food, and engaging company, I saw a lot of art.


I enjoyed the Henry Art Gallery (especially James Turrell’s Light Reign), but I loved discovering so much public art and the various forms it took. Peeking from behind street signs I saw a variety of colorful pieces.

These whimsical creatures are the products of Vikram Madan’s colorful imagination.
I’m assuming it says “Greatness Starts Here,”but it could be something else…
Just off a south Seattle street is this figure. All color comes from flattened soda cans.
In Seward Park near the playground

Update on Miniature Mobility: I wasn’t able to see the last piece because it had been stolen and not yet replaced when I returned home to Berkeley. But the artist herself assured me it would be more theft-proof and would be back up today (Wednesday). So if you live in the Seattle area, go find it!img_2206-2



Okay, this sign in someone’s yard isn’t art, but I enjoyed it anyway.
