Public Art / Seattle

Jack Mackie, Dance Steps on Broadway (Rumba)

Jen Graves continues to keep the spotlight on public art in Seattle. I love the way she presents the information via fictitious meeting notes. One of the artists she quotes in the piece is Jack Mackie. He's the fellow who did the bronze dance steps on Broadway. Ever since I moved here 13 years ago, they've been one of my favorite things about Capitol Hill. To me, they work on so many levels (conceptually, emotionally, fully-integrated, and accessible by everyone).
updated 6/12/2009: Corrected artist name. Apologies to Jack and thanks to Greg Kucera for catching it.
