Birds deserve a little art as well. This bird condo is located on Sixth Avenue.
This a book house. We love little lending libraries. This one just struck us as something more than just a book holder.
Close to the little lending libraries and just a block away from Wilson High School is this beautfil totem.
"Oh No Not Again" is a Sitka Spruce carving by Pat McVay showing whalers being flung about by a whale. This is located in Point Ruston.
Also located at Point Ruston is Familia Bonds created in granite by Will Robinson.
This mosaic is our tribute to the tidelands of the Pacific Northwest with seaweed, fish, starfish, sparkling water, and a broken pitcher.
This bear greets visitors to the Floatation Device, a favorite breakfast place in Purdy.
A rust garden gate, a rusty driveway gate, and rusting trees give us a freeling of both beauty and impermanance. We are only here temporately.
This is an octopus bike rack created by Jennifer Weddermann. With eight arms/legs, and octopus could easily pedal a tandem bike.
Baseball and running highlight this alley painting near the Crown Bar on Sixth Avenue in Tacoma.
This house on McKinley Hill was a complete surprise. We were just driving around after taking three granddaughters to breakfast at Ferfies on the Ave.
Trees are beautiful by themselves, of course, but a little touch here and there, can make them stand out . . . even on an overcast afternoon.
This reject from Star Wars, this wooden robot stood guard for years.
A bird castle and a walrus? An ivory tower and a bite of Tacoma's Point Defiance Zoo and Aquarium?
Transforming art of the art of transformers? We love what the city is doing to making evening something mundance interesting (not the garbage can as well).
Another birdhouse. It could be entitled "Duck and Cover."
I love the Jazzbones ad on the side of their wall. The picture hums a hundred notes.
The owner could have drilled, cut, and winched this tree trunk out of the front yard, but it is soooooo interesting. Why go to all that hard work, when it is already a piece of art?
I like this piece because it makes a boulder statement about art.
Tacoma is a snapshot city. You never know what you'll find . . . on the beach . . . at the park . . . or in the alley.
