Seattle Snow Storm

Seattle had more snow on the streets than I had seen before in the last 6 years I’ve lived here and according to older locals, the most snow since the early 1990s.‚  Below are a few pictures I took:

Broke my chains trying to get up this last little bit and had to park on the street. The ruts are the ones that my chained tires had dug with me trying to get up the hill.

Many buses, trucks & cars got stuck- including this semi.

Beautiful Art Made From Trash

I found the following art by Tim Nobel and Sue Webster to be really creative and pretty. I haven’t seen anything like it before. They take garbage and shape it into a specific form and have a bright light pointed at it so the trash creates interesting shadows. Nobel & Webster’s art though is probably better appreciated in a picture rather than in actual life… less smelly ;).

Eric Gustafson Amazing Art Photography

Eric Gustafson’s art photography is really cool. The artist Eric Gustafson tries to bring images to people that they have not seen before including strange perspectives and ambiguous emotive scenes. Eric Gustafson lives in Austin, Texas currently but has lived all over the country including my hometown of Seattle. Look at the images below and let me know what you think of Eric Gustafson!

First Thursday Art Walk in Seattle- Pioneer Square

Tonight I am headed out to do the art walk in downtown Seattle and Pioneer Square. The art walk is always entertaining as you get to talk to the artists, look at their art and drink cheap wine and eat snacks provided by said artists. The art walk event happens on the first Thursday of each month at about 6 pm. I recommend going to happy hour before going out on the art walk to fill your hour between the end of work and the beginning of art time. Tons of galleries throughout the hip Pioneer Square area open their doors for anyone to come in free on the first Thursday of each month. Below I have a picture of the locations of all the art galleries that will be open tonight. I strongly recommend that all of my friends come check it out if you haven’t already been out on the first thursday art walk yourself yet.
