I thought this woman to be a striking contrast to her surroundings. Seattle, like most large cities, has a very active street art community, and there is a cadre of photographers who are chronicling it wherever it appears throughout the city. This Post Alley wall is a fave place for instant street art installations of all kinds. Things change up pretty quickly, and it's always worth scanning to see what's up. Above her hat I see work by Narboo and Starheadboy, and way up high a giant foot sticker. You'll see this wall featured briefly in a new Jennifer Aniston flick called "Love Happens." They had the alley and PPMarket pretty tied up for a day when they were here filming last spring, and of course the art has changed since then.
Speaking of art Seattle style, summer is winding down and Seattlites will squeeze every last drop of fun from it with the much loved Bumbershoot Arts & Music Festival this coming Labor Day Weekend. I'm not sure I'll be able to make it this year, but I would sure love to hear Modest Mouse, just one of the many headliners performing. Here's a video of theirs I thought was clever in that the band memebers are projected onto walls and signs like street art as they perform. Kinda fun. You can even download Bumbershoot's ginormous multiday schedule as an iPhone application! And for those who can make it down to George, WA, DMB is playing their annual show at the Gorge over the weekend. Hope this is the start to a great last week of summer for you!
