WEST SEATTLE ART: ‘Multimedia, multicultural, multilingual’ display along bridge-detour route

(WSB photos)

Above are artists Kay Kirkpatrick, Judith Camann, and Kelly Lyles, who – along with Monica Cavagnaro – have just unveiled Highland Park Improvement Club‘s first “outdoor sandwich-board art display.”

They describe “Drive By and Sign Hi” as a “Burma Shave Ad-inspired recycled creation … a multimedia, multicultural, multilingual piece created to amaze and amuse your WS Bridge Detour route drive.”

It’s on the north side of busier-than-ever SW Holden, right outside HPIC (between 11th and 12th SW), and expected to be up into September.

      Actually, a famous haiku.   English translation of 17th century poem by haiku master Matsuo Bosho.

    Yep- no credit for the haiku authorship. Just sharing some calming imagery for our neighbors on the road.

    If you drive by you will see that the title of the Haiku and the author’s name The Old Pond by Basho is on the first board. It was just a hard angle for the photographer to get that in the photo while standing in the street watchin traffic traffic at the same time.

Sorry, comment time is over.
