No, they aren't waiting for the interurban. This family is gathered altogether on the couch to watch television, including the family cat and dog! This 1988 sculpture was created ten years after the artist's (Richard S. Beyer) most well known public piece, "Waiting for the Interurban"). "The Kingstones" sit outside the entrance of King5 Television on Dexter Street.

Great sculpture. The cat doesn't seem too interested in the TV, tho. Typical independent cat!!

What a great piece of art.

Terrific sculpture. Love the cat. I'll let you know as soon as we've got some plans in place.

Wow, this is so cool! Really neat statue. :) Must have taken a looooong time to make though.

Ha ha. This is great. It's a very clever cat as he doesn't care about the show!

I love this!

Puns always make me cringe, but I have to admit that the sculpture's title is appropriate. And, as is usual with them, the cat seems to be interested in something else entirely.

The cat seems to have the right idea, given most of what is on TV these days! I have to see this sculpture.
