Elections have begun! Olympia's Plinth Project on Percival Landing

The 2014 People's Prize competition began Friday July 25 and continues through August 31st. You can vote for one of the sculptures displayed on the plinths of Percival Landing. The city will purchase the sculpture with the most votes and place it in a different location as part of the city's public art collection.   

Plinths in architectural terminology, are pedestals upon which columns, statues, monument or structure stands. The City of Olympia has placed several plinths on Percival Landing providing a base for sculptures and performers. Take a walk along the landing, get a ballot and add your voice to the city's public art collection. And don't forget the plinth at the eastern end of Yashiro bridge, next to Bayview Thriftway. 

I've sketched a sampling below:

The daughter of a friend owns, with her husband, All City Coffee on Yale Street, just off Airport way in Georgetown. So I chose it for a meeting spot at the May sketch outing for the Urban Sketchers Seattle group. I like the old brick buildings a sense of history in Georgetown. 

I tucked around the corner to find three other sketches at the Georgetown trailer park --an art deco/hippie flea market.
