Check Out the New Art in Licton Springs!

Next time you're walking around the neighborhood, take a stroll down 92nd and 100th between Fremont and Wallingford to see all sorts of art exhibits!

We had a chance to check out, "One Time, One Meeting: A Community Shrine” by Erin Shigaki. The wooden placards bear words of hope and contemplation by and for the community during the global pandemic.

Big Tesla: where nature and technology meet

Right to the northwest of Licton Springs park at the Seattle City Light North Service Center lies a beautiful art piece by Merrily Tompkins. The art not only serves as a sign of nicer weather, as flowers bloom from Tesla's head but also serves as a great reminder that technology and nature can coexist in harmony. In a way, it's the perfect Seattle art piece, a city nestled in some of the most profoundly beautiful natural environments while leading the way in our technological future.
