I’ve been sketching a few sculptures lately (Team Effort at the Museum of Flight, Hammering Man, a temporarily crated-up Christopher Columbus, and even the Little David that SAM is using to promote their Michelangelo exhibit.) Here’s the one of Chief Seattle at 5th Avenue and Denny Way. Another city discovery for me. It was erected in 1912 after the Denny regrade (See article at HistoryLink.org).
Update: Read an interview with Chief Seattle by my Times colleague Bill Kossen. It will make you smile.
