On a recent trip to Pioneer Square in downtown Seattle, I stumbled on this fab work of public art that really captures the diverse people in this historic area that make it so unique! Luv the stylized look and did you notice the hats? 4 out of 5 people luv their hats – at least from this artist’s perspective! I didn’t see the artist signature on this piece of work so if you know – drop me a note and I’d happily give credit.
Pioneer Square is known for its diversity of everything from people, art galleries, delicious food, great music, to quirky shops, street performers and amazing architecture! One of the first historic areas of Seattle and well worth a visit especially if you can make it to the First Thursday Art Walk. Put Occidental Square on your day trip itinerary which always has unique rotating public art too!
Did I mention Pioneer Square was diverse? Here’s another great public art creation by Kate Tesch. Furry rodent meets iron lollipop is my interpretation but likely not the artist. I luv the painting style which make the rodent actually look cute and evil in a crazy hair short of way. Even luv the background which could have easily been a single boring color but is instead mixed color blocks adding great depth. Would I have it in on my wall? It’d be a great conversation starter if I did!
Sometime side streets and alleys have the best surprises for public art!
