"Under my um-ber-ella-ella-ella-ella-ella. . ." When WILL that song drop off the charts? It came to mind because I thought we'd start the week off with an abstract. This is a detail of a huge windblown inside-out red umbrella sculpture, ( Angie's Umbrella, Jay Pridgeon, 2002) located in a roadway divider on Western Ave. at Lenora in Belltown. This whimsical bumbershoot is kinetic and swivels whichever way the wind is blowing. (For a full view, click here.)
Speaking of music and bumbershoots. . .this coming weekend ushers in the 3 day Labor Day holiday, and with it at Seattle Center comes the huge, fantastic, and exciting annual Bumbershoot music and arts festival. It seems the whole of Seattle turns out for this fun end of summer treat. It is a ginormous, something-for-everyone multi festival of music, dance, film, comedy, literary and visual arts. Everything from world renown headliners to fresh new talent is there to experience. If you will be in town, check it out and try to snag some remaining tickets. Highly recommended!
