Remember West Seattle Art Attack? She/he/they’re back!

If you are a longtime WSB’er, you may remember West Seattle Art Attack – the whimsical late-night forays of a glass artist (and accomplices) to leave surprises here and there – here’s our first report from fall 2007. As far as we know, WSAA has been dormant for two years (here’s the last spree) – but we just got a communique:

We are targeting 6 houses in the Admiral neighborhood tonight. We scoped them out in an afternoon drive-by and it was hard to pick but based on our whims and an appreciation for the care they have put into their yards we have selected some recipients for a midnight (perhaps sooner) surprise. As long as everyone knows that this is yard art and often has cracks or chips (but is not dangerously sharp) and is not a piece of studio quality glass we’ll all be good. It’s great to be back attacking again!

WSAA tells us they’re actually already back from the covert operation … so if you find an artsy surprise in your yard, let us all know!

  2. We got attacked! What a pleasant surprise to find a beautiful vase sitting where the baby jasmine had died over the winter! The color complements our new deck and surrounding greenery!

  5. We were just discussing your house last night as we lovingly placed “gifts” around the neighborhood. We had a new “attacker” along with us and were describing the type of yard we look for. It has to be one that looks like it would appreciate some random “art” and it can’t look out of place. It’s so hard to pick because there are SO MANY beautiful yards in West Seattle. It’s a great place to live. It’s so nice to be appreciated and we are glad you are still enjoying your little “treasure.”

  6. What a delight to see a beautiful piece of glass art in vibrant underwater sea colors in our garden when I went out to have lunch on our front deck. I’m delighted and grateful that we were thought worthy for such a lovely gift.

  8. Why just in the Admiral area? How about other parts of WS–say, Delridge?

  12. What a great surprise! We just found a beautiful glass pumpkin near our front gate. The kids spotted it on our way for a walk and it made our day!!

  13. We have been trying to grow pumpkins in our yard for years to no avail. What a wonderful and ironic surprise to find a beautiful glass pumpkin in our front yard! Hopefully the art will give our pumpkin starts some ideas. Thanks for appreciating our tiny jungle!
