Seattle Art

7.30.2012



The very first thing I noticed after just a few hours of touring around Seattle: Art. Art everywhere. On buildings, in parks, sidewalks, by the waterfront, heck even in my latte! Trae and I didn't even feel the need to pay to go to any art museums because there was just so much all around us. There was even an entire park dedicated to artistic sculptures where people could be seen exercising or just chilling on the grass. It was simply gorgeous!

In case you're wondering what's behind me in the picture where I'm making a grossed out face, it's gum. Yup. Chewed gum from people all over Seattle as well as all over the world. Trae and I didn't have any gum on hand so we weren't able to participate (not sure if that's a good thing or not), but it was still the craziest (and most disgusting) tourist attraction I had experienced during my stay! I'm not sure how the Gum Wall began, or why the city even allowed it to continue.. It was just so weird! In a cool way. Austin is weird too, but even I don't think we're that weird. Looks like we gotta step up our game!

  2. Oh wow- whenever I go to other cities I always think they have way more public art and sculptures than we do and it always makes me a little embarrassed for my city. But when you collage our little pieces like that, it actually doesn't look so bad! Thanks! I also like the little dragons crawling up the light posts in the International District. Where's the little upside down guy? I do love the Sculpture Park, though. My friend and I go running once a week and that's where we start! Have a great day!

  11. I think my favorite thing up there is the floating ampersand. (: Also, I love the PNW, there's art like that in Portland and Eugene and (I'm told) Tacoma. We like our random public art 'round here.
