Found Art: Seattle

I spent last weekend in Seattle exploring all of the independent creativity that the Northwest has to offer. The found art throughout the surrounding neighborhoods was a highlight in my explorations. 

From the Chihuly inspired glass sculptures high in the sky to the famous troll, the self-proclaimed "Center of the Universe" Fremont neighborhood is the place to go if you are searching for the biggest art movement in Seattle, glass-blowing. 
The South Lake Union neighborhood is Paul Allen's latest creation or renovation project. I loved seeing a pig from the Pigs on Parade exhibition outside of Tom Douglas's restaurant Serious Pie. The chalk finish invites the community to participate in the art. 
Let's hope the public art continues to evolve and build up the communities that bring Seattle together.
