No, that was NOT the West Seattle troll on a truck!

Thanks to Shannon for the photo – and to John for the first word via a comment with a screengrab of the ferry-dock camera! That was NOT “our” troll being trucked out of West Seattle this morning – it was the future Ballard troll, after arriving via ferry from Vashon Island. It will be placed at the National Nordic Museum for an unveiling on Monday – the last of the six trolls that artist Thomas Dambo is placing around the Northwest.

    The Vashon Troll Project hosted the build of Frankie, Feet Splinter over 2.5 weeks in the same location as our troll, Oscar, the Bird King.  Frankie needed a different site for building than where they ended up landing at the National Nordic Museum (Frankie prefers the pronoun ‘they’ according the Dambo).  It was a busy site with Dambo’s full 11 person crew and 20 volunteers per day. Frankie went off to their Ballard location Friday morning – and we enjoyed seeing them at their new home in Ballard in full completion Monday evening. Thanks for all the collaboration to Scan Design Foundation, Paul G Allen Foundation, Vashon Parks District, Vashon Chamber, Vashon Land Trust, Vashon Center for the Arts, and the National Nordic Museum. 

Sorry, comment time is over.
