Street art – Seattle

There are always things that I miss about the last place I lived, and after leaving New York, I definitely miss the ART!  I was nervous moving back to Seattle, and wondered if I’d be culturally starved. What I’ve come to realize is that art is EVERYWHERE, you just have to look a little harder for it. Someone told me that with all the new Amazon construction downtown, they have big budgets for landscaping and art. I started looking more closely and saw intricate iron work trellises, waterfalls, sculptures and handcrafted details. Check out some of the art I stumbled upon…
