You are here

Here’s a new entry of my “artspotting” series: a detail of a mural you may have seen from the light rail or if you found yourself near the Sodo busway and South Holgate Street, as I did a couple of weeks ago. It was created in 2008 by Kristen Ramirez and a long list of urbanartworks.org youth artists, including Charlie Braseth, Jerome Cabang, Evan Harkey, Damonte Jackson, Lamarr Kimmons, James Loaris III, Nick McArn, Cari Mitchell, Stephen Palmer, Charls Magne Sotelo, Ja’Cola Whidby, Hai Shan Wu and mentor artist Kaleb Hunkele.

I later realized that I had sketched Ramirez in 2009 when she was working on another cool art project: Noise as art from the Fremont bridge.

All this sketching sure makes me feel more connected to Seattle and the people who make our city such a cool place to live. It’s good to be reminded of where we are!

“You are here.”
